An acrobat fell to the ground while initially being suspended in the air during a DJ set at Coachella.

Video footage from night two of the music festival on Saturday shows the shocking moment the dancer fell after twirling around in the air inside the dimly lit room as partygoers danced along to the music.

The acrobat could be seen twisting around a hanging curtain, and as she unfurled the sheet she appeared to lose her grip, plummeting between two speakers.

The woman lay motionless on the ground as people rushed to her aid, and paramedics quickly arrived to take her away.

The incident occurred about 5 minutes into her performance.

It was unclear on Sunday whether the woman suffered an injury while dancing or simply lost her grip, TMZ reports.

The outlet noted that a young member of the crowd fainted when she saw the woman fall, while others rushed to get the DJ to stop playing when the paramedics arrived.

The dancer’s condition remains unclear, but she was able to blink before the first responders carried her off.

Immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment about the incident.

Saturday’s fall was eerily reminiscent of a 2019 incident at the music festival where a worker fell to his death while erecting a stage for the show.

The worker, whose identity was not publicly identified, worked as a “lead rigger” and had been on the roof when he suddenly fell.

“He has been with our team for 20 years in the desert and was doing what he loved,” Coachella officials said in a statement at the time.”He was a hard-working and loving person that cared deeply about his team.

“As our lead rigger, he was responsible for the countless incredible shows that have been put on at the festival.”
