Charleny Boudreau walked away with a scraped elbow but did not sustain any major injuries after falling from a trapeze platform, circus officials said.

Boudreau finished performing but lost her balance and fell towards a net. However, she hit the corner of the net and fell to the ground, said Rodney West, circus spokesman.

Rescue workers arrived just after 6 p.m. but she did not require treatment, said Olufunke Owolabi, fire and rescue spokeswoman.

Boudreau is expected to perform on Sunday, the final day the circus will be at the mall.
