PERU, Ind. (AP) - A Peru man and his family are back in Indiana after spending two years in China working with that country's top circus as a human cannonball.
Jon and Jenny Cole both have circus backgrounds. Jon has worked in a flying trapeze act, and Jenny is a third-generation circus trainer.
They tell the Kokomo Tribune that they decided to go to China after a local cannon builder suggested Jon try being a human cannonball.
Jon became a star in China, but the couple decided to return to Indiana this year so their children can begin training in the Peru youth circus.
