It is similar to the ‘Wall of Death’, but riders can loop vertically as well as horizontally. In video footage filmed by a spectator, the stunt riders are seen speeding inside the metal ball as one of them falls off, landing on top of other bikers. Circus spokesman Fernando Angeles confirmed that nine people were injured after the motorcyclist fell from the top of the sphere onto the other participants. He said: ‘Every bike is checked before the event, but the truth is we do not know what happened. Sometimes these things are out of our hands.’ The Globe of Death stunt went badly wrong (Picture: CEN) Of the nine injured, five members are hospitalised in a serious condition.
