9 Performers Fall in Rhode Island Circus Accident

After the "human chandelier" fell at the circus in Rhode Island, eleven performers were injured.

Honestly, the people that put these props in the air or the mechanics need to do a better job. When you are dangling people by their hair, yeah, it will hurt a lot! There is no reason why they could have done a safety check one more time before the show.

This doesn't really relate to anything in our current classes, but it may relate to something in Physics. Some of the performers defy gravity. But the mechanics and people putting these things in the air need to know how many pounds need to be held by the contraption.

How does the structure of the text refine and support the author’s claim? Use evidence from the selection to support your answer.
The author uses quotes from spectators and performers to support their claim. She even tells that the circus and the theater went and set up a counciling hot line for those who were disturbed by the accident.
