On October 17, 2009 Cirque du Soleil performer Oleksandr Zhurov (Sacha) died of injuries suffered after a fall from the Russian swing during a regular training exercise. The twenty-four-year-old Ukranian artist was immediately taken to hospital following the accident where he succumbed to his injuries the next day. Cirque du Soleil issued a press release in which CEO Guy Laliberté said, "Today, it is all of Cirque that is in mourning ... An incident like this reminds us of the courage and determination displayed by our artists each and every day. They are exceptional human beings who share their talents with great generosity."
