Shouldn't these folks be wearing helmets?

"You could hear people crying and all the actors were pretty much looking down," Asit Govil, who watched Saturday's show with his sister-in-law Ritu Govil, told KVVU-Fox 5.“When I saw the person falling, I thought, most probably there's a net down there. Obviously I realized very soon that wasn't the case," said Govil.

"You could hear the sobs and the crying of the artists, crying for their fellow artist," said Ritu Govil.

As much as those performers do their act as though they were immune to gravity, they are only human. It was inevitable that this would happen sooner or later. It's surprising it doesn't happen more often.

They got comped tickets for another show, but you're typically ignorant in what you "know".
