WillofJ2: Spad31: FTFA: "The cause of death had not been determined..."How about gravity, falling and a sudden stop on the stage?I read that, and was coming to comment, maybe it was sabotage? Otherwise physics took another live
srschatzer: Where does the line form for me to complain my headline was better?"Wow, a performance of a lifetime!"/too soon?//too snarky for even Farky?Also: She was 22 and had been performing with Ka since it opened in 2006, does my math tell me she started performing at age 15?
akuma976: The wife and I saw Ka a couple years ago and I loved it. It's full of martial arts, fire, amazing stunts and one big azz moving stage. Hope they don't close the show down.
The Stealth Hippopotamus: 30 years of shows with events happening around the world. It shocking it took this long.
AverageAmericanGuy: A Cirque friend is spamming up my FB feed with this story. Last year (to the day, apparently) he fell off the stage himself and broke several ribs.The show isn't safe and as the stages get older, there are going to be many more accidents like this as the wires and hinges and welds weaken.I've seen many of the Cirque shows, but I'd rather see them go out on top now than to see them slink away after another bunch of accidents.
spidermilk: There are other people who die cutting down trees [etc]
iron_city_ap: Spad31: FTFA: "The cause of death had not been determined..."How about gravity, falling and a sudden stop on the stage?Maybe its just me, but it seems pretty obvious that she was killed by a grizzly bear.
karmachameleon: wellreadneck: The comments section reads like the Fark Politics's tab.lol, you aren't kidding. A classic example of, "Never read the bottom half of the internet".
jtown: Man, that's terrible. I've seen most of their Vegas shows. There are very few times I've spent nearly $200/seat for a show and walked out thinking it was worth every penny but that's what I paid for front row at O and, daaaayum. Most other shows are crap after CdS.
WillofJ2: suicide: bighairyguy: She should track down Owen Hart and swap stories.I dunno what she'd get out of it, really. He was never quite the showstopper she was.did they continue that event when he died?

Otherwise physics took another liveShe could have had a heart attack or other cardiac event, an aneurism, or a sudden drop in blood sugar that caused her to pass out or lose her grip. Any of a number of medical events (or a mechanical problem with the equipment) could have caused her to fall.Even if hitting the stage did her in, they have to determine what exactly killed her. Did she break a rib, which impaled a lung or sliced an artery, causing her to hemorrhage internally? Did her skull get crushed? Did she land on a pile of razor blades?"She fell" isn't an official cause of death.

Twitch Boy: Actually saw Ka when I was in Vegas.
