I Hope She's Okay! -M

Cirque du Soleil acrobat and three-time Australian Olympian rushed to hospital after falling on her head during circus performance in Brisbane


 


Lisa Skinner, 35, a three-time Olympian fell four to five metres from rings during a Sunday afternoon show.
Paramedics rushed to the Commonwealth Games gold medalist's side as it appeared she was conscious and displaying no obvious signs of injuries.
She was performing at the big top at Skygate, near Brisbane Airport, about 2pm AEST on Sunday and remains in a stable condition at Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital.

The Brisbane woman was performing with the Kooza show when the accident happened.
But she is expected to leave hospital in coming days, Cirque du Soleil said.
'We are happy to report that Lisa is currently stable and in good condition,' they said in a statement on Monday afternoon.
'At this time, our priority is on supporting Lisa and her family so they can focus on her recovery. The thoughts and love from the cast and crew of Kooza are with her.'
 A witness said the fall was absolutely terrifying.
'We were not allowed to move out of our seats with two small children,' she told The Courier-Mail.
