Aerialist hospitalized after fall at LA mall

LOS ANGELES (AP) - November 30, 2009 Ray Pierce of Hollywood Aerial Arts, the firm putting on the performance, says the 26-year-old woman slipped Saturday night while hanging upside down from a metal hoop during the finale of the show "Hunky Santa and the Candy Cane Girls."

Pierce says the performer fell into a video projection cube and injured her wrist and pelvis. She was not wearing a harness and there were no nets to break her fall.
