    A toddler attending a Bronx 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 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.

    Featured acts can include a contortionist, stilt dancers and trick dogs.
