A girl performing within the picturesque “Voladores” ritual has died after falling from the 30-yard excessive pole, authorities within the central Mexico state of Puebla confirmed Sunday.
The municipal authorities within the metropolis of Huauchinango mentioned it was cancelling the remaining festivities in an indication of mourning.
The performers had been apparently from a troupe of primarily feminine “voladores.” They had been performing on the metropolis’s Festival of Flowers when the accident occurred Saturday evening.
