Yann Arnaud Has Died After Cirque de Soleil Fall in Tampa

Yann Arnaud was suspended by straps above the stage Saturday night when he fell, the company said.

After falling during a performance of Cirque du Soleil's Volta on March 17, the longtime aerialist Yann Arnaud, plummeted to his death in front of a horrified crowd in Tampa, Fla, on Saturday night. The French performance artist died of his injuries at a nearby hospital.

Volta's remaining two shows in Tampa have been cancelled.

Arnaud had been performing in Cirque shows for 15 years and was considered one of the company's most experienced entertainers, president and CEO Daniel Lamarre said in a telephone interview. We are now gathering more information about this tragic event.

Cirque du Soleil said it was looking further into the circumstances surrounding the accident and that it would offer its "full and transparent collaboration" with authorities moving forward. "I saw the two acrobatics exchanging glances before hand and I don't know if one was trying to enjoy the other was ok", said Julian Martinez, a witness.

"It was terrible. You heard all the cries of the audience".

A performer at Cirque Du Soleil has died Sunday following a tragic fall during a performance in Tampa, Florida.

The spokesperson added that they were working to give audience members a refund for their tickets. In October 2013, veteran acrobat Sarah Guyard-Guillot fell 28 meters (94ft) to her death at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The Nevada Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) cited Cirque du Soleil and the casino for violations, and both faced thousands of dollars in fines.
