A Cirque du Soleil acrobat has died after plunging 50ft to her death in the final scene of a Las Vegas show.
Paris-born mother-of-two Sarah Guyard-Guillot, 31, was pronounced dead late Saturday night after she slipped free from her safety wire during the performance.
Witnesses said she was being hoisted up the side of the 'vertical' stage when she slipped and plummeted into an open pit below.
i apologize for nudging in, but the phrase "kills herself" might be interpreted as intentional. perhaps different wording? it was an accident, right?? what a loss to the beautiful show. i have seen a couple of productions and totally mesmerized. blessings to her family.
