Two stunt motorcyclists in England have been taken to hospital after colliding in mid-air during a “thunderball” performance.
Audience members had to be evacuated after the crash at Uncle Sam’s Great American Circus in Chantry Park, Ipswich.
The male riders were taking part in a Wall of Death-style performance when the incident happened.
Medics from East Anglia Air Ambulance treated the men before they were taken by ambulance to Ipswich Hospital. They are said to be in a stable condition.
The circus posted a statement on its Facebook page saying: “To all our audience from the 4.30pm show today, we would just like to thank you all for your support during the accident with our thunderball riders.
“We have just had an update from Ipswich Hospital and both are doing well and stable, soon to be on the mend.
“We want to thank you for your understanding as we had to cut short the show. However our riders’ safety was, and is, our main priority.
“We will pass on all your kind words and well wishes and keep all posted on any updates.”
