St. Louis trapeze artist retires at 90-years-old

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A trapeze artist in Saint Louis is calling it quits at 90-years-old.

Elizabeth Herring dazzled crowds with her aerial moves for the final time Friday night.

She's been in the circus since she was 18, but kept her feet firmly planted on the ground, as a promise to her parents.

When Herring turned 80, she decided to follow her original dream.

That's when she joined back up with the circus and started performing trapeze tricks.
