MadAzza: 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 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.
Coelacanth: That used to be the EFX Theater until MGM maimed too many people.I was a Day One employee there, and they must've injured an hundred dancers rehearsing for the EFX show. The star of the show, Michael Crawford was injured going down a zip line and he was forced to retire from show business for awhile on account of his injuries.
Chagrin: Can Cirque du Soleil be sued for false advertising if they advertise death defying stunts?
Hector Remarkable: Gravity is not just a good idea - It's the Law.
