Will post more as we find out, but it doesn't sound too serious thankfully.

You know what's funny is how "serious" our local news stations treated it. It's a stunt show, accidents are bound to happen. The accident didn't occur due to negligence, but because of the danger that these performers put themselves in to entertain the guests. We were at the parks when it all went down, and 3-4 choppers were circling the area. I swear, you would have thought some serious breaking news was going on.

The bright side to all this is that it wasn't a serious injury.
