Herald Tribune - 03-21


SARASOTA — A previously unknown video of the 2017 Circus Sarasota rehearsal that resulted in the collapse of Nik Wallenda’s dangerous eight-person pyramid has surfaced. The Herald-Tribune learned of its existence and obtained a copy from the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office, where it had remained since 2017. The aftermath of that accident throws a spotlight on a pending litigation lodged by one of the troupe’s injured family members.
