Injured acrobat not sure she will ever do hair act again Published: May 7, 2014

One of the eight circus acrobats who plunged to the ground during a hair-hanging act said on "Good Morning America" Wednesday, she is not sure if she or any of the other acrobats will ever perform the act again.

“For now, it’ll be a while and it’s not sure if any of us will be doing hair again,” Samantha Pitard said on “GMA.” “I will, eventually, not sure when yet, go back to the show.”

Pitard was released from the hospital Tuesday, two days after she and seven other acrobats fell nearly 35 feet while performing a "human chandelier," an act that entails hanging from an apparatus by their hair, during a Sunday performance of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus in Providence, R.I.
