During a Ringling Brothers And Barnum & Bailey Circus performance Sunday at at Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island, nine acrobats were doing a hair-hang act when all of them fell to the ground.

As if it wasn't bad enough that they were hanging from their hair, the equipment they were hanging from malfunctioned, causing them to fall at least 15 feet.

Nine were critically injured and some others with the act less so, but, thankfully, there were no casualties, The Providence Journal reported.
