Acrobats Hurt In Circus Accident

 

 

 

 

” A platform collapsed during an aerial hair-hanging stunt at a circus performance Sunday, sending eight acrobats plummeting to the ground. Nine performers were seriously injured in the fall, including a dancer below, while an unknown number of others suffered less serious injuries.

  The accident was reported about 45 minutes into the Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus’ 11 a.m. Legends show at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence.

  Stephen Payne, a spokesman for Feld Entertainment, the parent company of Ringling Bros., said the accident happened during an act in which eight performers hang “like a human chandelier” using their hair.

  He said the metal-frame apparatus from which the performers were hanging came free from the metal truss it was connected to. The eight women fell up to 40 feet (12 meters), landing on a dancer on the ground.”

Man Survives Empire State Building Fall

 

 

 

 

 

” Tourists taking in the view of the city from atop New York’s Empire State Building were shocked when a man fell from the observation deck, then landed a floor below.

Nathaniel Fimone fell from the observation deck of the Manhattan skyscraper just before midnight Wednesday. He fell from the 86th floor and landed on a catwalk just below it, between the 86th and 85th floors.

According to eyewitnesses who spoke with the New York Daily News, Fimone, once he was on the catwalk, swung his legs into the air as if he meant to drop again.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are Cars Really Safer than Guns?

  “Consider that during the first decade of this century, 40 million new guns were manufactured for sale inside the U.S., even while the murder rate has dropped 14%.(1)

In other words, Americans own more guns than ever, and yet there is far less murder and crime.

So what’s the gun control lobby to do?  Their basic tenet is that more guns will inevitably lead to more bloodshed.  The statistics, however, betray their guiding principles.”

 

But there is more ..

 

 

   “Yes, but it gets even worse for the VPC.  A closer look at the ten states cited in their study reveals that, despite loosening their gun restrictions, these states are still experiencing less murder and violence.

In other words, fewer government regulations have resulted in fewer gun deaths!  (Oh, what is the Violence Policy Center to do?)

Take the state of Alaska, which adopted a constitutional carry law in 2003, allowing its citizens to carry concealed firearms without getting a permit or prior permission from the government.  The VPC claims these types of carry laws “threaten public and private safety.”(3) ”
