She hit her head as she fell and remained motionless on the stage.

The unnamed woman stopped breathing and staff members tried to resuscitate her in front of the shocked crowd.

Show workers performed chest compressions on her as she lay under the spotlights.

She was taken to a nearby hospital in the Chinese megacity of Chongqing on 12 April.

But despite the best efforts of medics, she died shortly after arrival.

The performer had said she felt unwell earlier the same day, as reported by Need to Know.

An autopsy will be carried out to establish the exact cause of death.
