For many children, attending a circus show is a really fun time. Kids love to see the amazing acrobatic stunts and watch the animals perform their tricks.
However, things took a turn for the worst recently at a circus show in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. According to reports, a camel escaped and began to terrorize the crowd. Multiple children were injured by the large creature.
"In the video of the incident, a person could be seen clinging to the hump of the covered camel, thrashing violently as the animal bucked its way down the side of the arena. For a few seconds, the arena became a circus indeed, with audience members shrieking as panicked circus workers rushed to contain the renegade camel," reported The Washington Post.
Witnesses at the scene described the horror they watched.
“The woman was holding onto the littlest one, then she fell right onto her head. . . . The woman was trying so much to hold on to the child,” Jenny Lynch told the newspaper. “I was shouting, ‘Jesus help them.’ It was very scary.”
