A circus performer in Houston, Texas is reportedly doing fine after tumbling to the ground during an acrobatic stunt gone wrong at the Circo Hermanos Vazquez.

It was a human error. These things happen at the circus. We all put all of our work in here. It's a performance. It's a live performance and that is what a lot of people don't understand," said Lorena Vignaud, the general manager of Circo Hermanos Vazquez. "Like balancing acts, like the strong men acts, all those kinds of acts they all have a risk. This act was one of the ones that was the highest risk of them all.


Circus management says that the female acrobat suffered only bruises and has been cleared to return to work. Circo Hermanos Vazquez will have shows in Houston through early July.
