The couple was performing in Suzhou city of central Anhui province. This incident was captured on camera.
A Twitter user named Manya Koetse (@manyapan) shared the video, writing, “…Today there was a lot of talk on Chinese social media about the fatal accident that happened in Suzhou during a live acrobatic show. The female performer performed. She didn’t wear the safety harness and fell. She was taken to the hospital but she passed away.”
“While there is a lot of talk about the safety regulations for high-altitude acrobatics in China, there is also talk about the performance company knowing that the woman intentionally did not wear a safety belt after a fight with her partner (the male performer). She Denies. The matter is being investigated,” the Twitter user further added.
“As more details emerge about this incident, The Paper publishes this video showing that the couple, husband Zhang and wife Sun, had previously performed a high-risk performance without proper safety measures. More money will be paid for more dangerous acts,” he added.
