Moscow - A Kenyan acrobat has fallen through a safety net during a show at a Moscow circus and was rushed to hospital with severe injuries.
An amateur video aired on Russian television showed 22-year-old Karo Christopher Kazungu fall through the safety net during a Wednesday night show.
The Great Moscow State Circus said on its website on Thursday that Kazungu was conscious when he was taken to hospital. The RIA Novosti news agency quoted the director of that acrobatics show saying that Kazungu was diagnosed with fracture of one vertebra in his spine.
Kazungu was one of a dozen Russian and Kenyan performers who were taking part in a highly complex acrobatics show. - Sapa-AP
