Makeover of Casino Square to dramatically change the look of Monte Carlo

Tightrope walkers tumble at circus

Tightrope walkers tumble at circus

By Staff Writer - January 23, 2017

A few gasps Sunday morning at Monte-Carlo’s 41st International Circus Festival when tightrope walkers fell several metres during a performance.

The incident was triggered during a seven-person pyramid high-wire act by The Gerlings – “a new group of experienced acrobats which will turn any show, fair or occasion to an unforgettable one”, according to their website – when an eighth troupe member tried to do a handstand on top of the last acrobat but lost his balance.

Several of the acrobats fell, but, reported Nice-Matin, only one was injured suffering a wrist fracture, and was operated at the Princess Grace Hospital in the afternoon.
