Camel Gets Startled, Injures 7 At Pittsburgh Circus

 

Two children and an adult were riding a camel during an intermission this weekend at the Shrine Circus at PPG Paints Arena when it became startled. 

“They were giving camel rides and camels were walking around calmly. And then a kid threw a shovel at the camel’s feet, which startled the camel and it started to buck,” one witness told CBS Pittsburgh.

One child's arm was broken and taken to the hospital along with five other children and one adult.

“Ladies and gentlemen, remain calm please. Please remain calm. No unnecessary movement. Slowly leave the arena floor if you feel safer. We are looking for a medic, an EMT,” an announcer could be heard saying in the video above.

The circus was on its third and final day.
