Chinese Acrobat Dies in Fall at U.S. Amusement Park

A member of the Amazing Acrobats of China who fell during a performance at a theme park died Saturday from his injuries, officials said.

The man hit his head after falling Friday while trying to balance on a stack of chairs at Six Flags Elitch Gardens, Denver police said.

The performer was rushed to Denver Health Medical Center where he died. His name was not released.

The theater was full when he fell, park spokeswoman Brooke Brasher said. The company canceled its Saturday performance and future shows were on hold.
