In a cell phone photo provided by Tara Griggs, emergency workers tend to injured performers after a platform collapsed, Sunday, May 4, 2014, during the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus' Legends show at the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence, R.I. At least nine people were injured in the fall, including a dancer below. Roman Garcia, general manager of the show, said the accident occurred during the "hair hang" act in which the performers hang from their hair. (AP Photo/Tara Griggs)
