"One of the aerial straps artists of VOLTA by Cirque du Soleil fell during his performance on stage in Tampa".

"It is with vast sadness that Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group reports that a tragic accident occured last night, March, 17, during a performance of its show VOLTA, in Tampa, Florida", the statement read.

Afterwards, Cirque du Soleil released a statement about the accident, noting that crew members rushed to Arnaud's aid and immediately transported him to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead sometime later.

Arnaud's Instagram is filled with pictures of fellow Cirque du Soleil performers and his wife and young daughter.

Yann Arnaud, an aerialist who was performing during a March 17 production of VOLTA, died from his injuries in the hospital, the company said.

'We are offering our full and transparent collaboration to the authorities as they look into the circumstances of this accident'.

In August 2017, a show in Gatineau, Que., was stopped temporarily when a performer fell. "You heard all the cries of the audience". "What is the cost of our entertainment at that point?" In June 2013, 31-year-old acrobat and aerialist Sarah Guillot-Guyard died after a fall during a show at a Las Vegas casino.

The Cirque du Soleil show, Volta, has been held in a tent at the Tampa Greyhound Track since mid-February.

"We are now gather more information about this tragic event", the statement went on. Cirque du Soleil eventually settled with OSHA, bringing six citations to one, the Las Vegas Sun reported.
