Conductor breaks back falling into pit

From the "Wouldn't "Toi toi" have sufficed" file, David Ott, conductor of Pensacola Opera in Florida, fell 14 feet into the space below the movable pit on Friday breaking nine vertebrae and his ankle, and dislocating his shoulder. Opera: It's a dangerous sport!
