A traveling cast member of the Cirque du Soleil performance series died after suffering a serious fall during a show this weekend.

Emergency procedures were immediately performed and he was transported to the closest hospital, but unfortunately, he later succumbed to his injuries.

The aerial acrobat, Yann Arnaud, fell on stage during a performance of their show Volta on Saturday and succumbed to his injuries Sunday, the company said.

The performer fell while swinging from an aerial strap.

"After so much work and training and staging, our straps duo act is finally in the show tonight", he wrote.

Cirque du Soleil did not specify how far Arnaud fell, but did say they were collaborating with the local authorities as they look into the accident.
