Providence, RI-At least nine Barnum and Bailey circus acrobats were injured after plummeting 30 feet during a performance in Rhode Island on Sunday morning.

The accident happened at the Dunkin' Donuts center in Providence.

The acrobats were performing what they call the "Human Chandelier" when the hair-hang apparatus broke.

The injured were transported to local hospitals with serious injuries, but Barnum and Bailey officials say they are expected to survive.
