The article says she was screaming all the way down, and then, when she hit the ground and they turned off the music, the audience could hear her screams and cries. She died on the way to the hospital. I guess a wire snapped. They’ve not had a death in all their thirty years.
When we went to Vegas February 2012, we saw Kaa. We most likely saw this young lady performing. All shows of Kaa have been canceled for the forseeable future. How horrible.
I feel terrible not only for the audience but for the other performers. I’ve been in a dance troup, and it is like your extended family. There’s plenty of bickering and fighting but you love each other, too. I can imagine the horror.
