Performers are now recovering after a horrific stunt went wrong over the weekend at a “Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus” show.

TMZ has video of Sunday’s show in Rhode Island where a high wire snapped sending dozens of performers crashing to the ground.

The frightened audience watched and filmed video in shock. The performers were about to start an aerial stunt when the wire they are attached to fell about 30 feet.

11 victims were transported to the hospital, 9 were Ringling Bros. employees and one person is in critical condition.

Moments after the accident the emergency team responded to help the performers as lights were dimmed to prevent children from seeing the scene.
