http://omg.yahoo.com/blogs/celeb-news/cirque-du-soleil-death-everything-know-161719031.html What should have been another fun-filled summer weekend turned tragic last Saturday night, when Sarah Guillot-Guyard, a 31-year-old Cirque du Soleil performer and mother of two, fell to her death during a live performance of "KA" at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. "Sassoon" (as her Cirque family called her) reportedly was being hoisted up the side of the vertical stage during the show's final battle scene when she slipped from her safety wire. Fans and families, including many children, watched in horror as the acrobat plummeted more than 50 feet into an open pit below the performers. At first, many people in the audience assumed this was part of the act, but it soon became clear something was terribly wrong. "You could hear screaming, then groaning, and we could hear a female artist crying from the stage," a witness named Dan Mosqueda (who attended the show with his wife and 10-year-old son) recounted to the Las Vegas Sun. ======= cue Jackie laugh.
