On February 10, Disney fans around the Minneapolis area headed to the Target Center to enjoy an afternoon performance of Disney on Ice. Sadly, the afternoon went from exciting to scary when one of the skaters took an incredibly bad fall. The fall was so bad that the ice performer — who was playing Princess Belle — hit her head and began to have a seizure, while the audience could do nothing but watch in horror.

The Disney ice skater, identified as Anastasia Olson, was being lifted into the air, but the lift did not go as expected. The man playing the Beast/Prince dropped her, and she hit her head on the ice. Medical teams quickly attended to Ms. Olson, and she was rushed to a local hospital, where she was listed in critical condition.

After Olson fell, the other skaters in the show kept performing, which some audience members said they appreciated. The performers continued skating and gave the children in the audience something else to focus on besides the injured Olson. One parent said that the ice skaters were able to “preserve the magic” for the younger viewers in the audience.
