MiamiHerald / An acrobat who fell a dozen or so feet during a Tampa Cirque de Soleil performance Saturday night has died from his injuries, a Tampa General spokeswoman confirmed to the Tampa Bay Times.
Around 10 during the Saturday Volta show, veteran aerialist Yann Arnaud lost control of his grip on a strap and fell a dozen or so feet to the stage, a video reviewed by the Tampa Bay Times showed.
The show immediately stopped so medical professionals could tend to the injured performer. Arnaud, who lived with his wife in the Miami area, was taken to Tampa General Hospital. He died there, a hospital spokeswoman confirmed.
Earlier Sunday, Cirque du Soleil announced in a statement that the rest of its Tampa weekend performances would be canceled.
