December 24 2008

Russian acrobat Rafshan Alimov died while performing tricks in a provincial British circus.

The tragedy occurred on Sunday in a circus resort town of Blackpool in northwest England. Twenty-four Rafshan Alimov perform acrobatic jump from a springboard, but could not, as planned on the script trick, land on the chair, which he held over the head of another actor.

As a result, an acrobat fell from a five-meter height and had a serious head injury. He was taken to the Royal hospital in Preston, but doctors were unable to help him, and he some time later died from his injuries, according to RIA Novosti .
