Ramnitz says the circus was using a safety crossbow and that the arrow only broke the skin, where there is a small sore.

"She is not seriously injured but has been taken to the hospital for a check-up," says Ramnitz. The performer is expected to rejoin the circus later on Sunday.

The police understand the incident to be a work-related accident.
