Applause can be heard from the crowd as Sergey quickly carries his injured wife from the ring at the Omsk circus.

It was later reported that the circus performer suffered a broken wrist and fears a possible fractured spine as well.

The wounded trapeze artist is a member of the traveling Filatov circus, run by a dynasty going back 180 years and reputed to be the oldest in Russia.

“The health of the performer is now not in danger and she will soon return to the arena,” the Filatov circus announced.

Zolotukhina had posted about the new high-risk act eight weeks ago saying it was in preparation for two years as she suffered “scars, bruises, fear and much more behind the scenes” during its preparation.

“I worked, I tried. I was on my way to my goal, and now I’m flying. I made it,” she wrote, according to East2West.

The general director of the Great Moscow State Circus Edgard Zapashny confirmed that the circus director was at the hospital with Zolotukhina, who was moving around independently.
