Dropping the kid
We have always wondered if Chinese acrobats creating a stack of people on top of a pole ever drop the child that is invariably at the top of the stack. It is always part of the show to let the child fall to scare the crowd, but the child is always held by the feet so as not to fall all the way down. On February 18, a child did fall all the way to the ground. Photos of the event were on the front page of every newspaper on February 20. The above photos are from Kom Chad Luek, February 20, 2007.
