A toddler attending a New York City circus with his family has suffered head trauma after falling more than 10 feet from the stands.

The 1-year-old boy was attending a show at the UniverSoul Circus tent Friday morning in the Bronx when he slipped through the bleachers.

The child was taken to a nearby hospital. His condition was not immediately known.

Circus spokesman Hank Ernest said it was "a truly unfortunate accident." He said they were hoping for a speedy recovery for the boy.

The Atlanta-based circus was founded in 1994 to showcase the talents of black performers but has an international cast.
