Yikes! Did we just watch someone die? Well thankfully, no. According to 7News Boston, acrobat Cyrus Nock suffered three cracked ribs and a punctured lung, which is no joke but it could have been a lot worse.
I mean this guy lost his balance 20 feet up…
And ended up basically crucified in front of horrified onlookers…
The fact he lived to tell the tale is a testament to the durability of circus acrobats. Plus he’s got a sweet viral video out of it too that will live on in internet infamy forever. Reckon circus acrobats in America have decent health insurance or what?
