LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A Cirque du Soleil performer fell Sunday night during a performance of "The Beatles LOVE" at The Mirage.

It happened during the 9:30 p.m. show. Cirque du Soleil says that the aerial artist fell during the finale.

The show was stopped as a precautionary measure and the emergency team safely took the artist backstage where he was taken care of by the show's medical team. The performer was then transported to a local hospital for examination.

Cirque du Soleil says that the artist will be monitored by the show's medical and coaching teams to determine when he can return to his activities.

Another Cirque du Soleil performer fell in January during a performance of "O" at the Bellagio hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

And in October, a performer was injured during a performance of "R.U.N." at the Luxor hotel-casino.

In 2013, a performer by the name of Sarah Guyard died during a performance of "Ka" at the MGM Grand.
