What's gone viral: Cirque du Soleil's tragedy and Blue Ivy bids for $19k art

702 producer Khabazela (Jonathan Fairbairn) looks at what's gone viral on social media starting off with Cirque du Soleil where a video has emerged of one of their aerial performers falling to his death at a show in Tampa Bay, Florida on Saturday night.

While the crowd was filming, they caught this guy falling to his death while performing... you have to think of his family when you release these kind of videos.

A 38-year-old father of two, Yann Arnaud, succumbed to his injuries while he was being transported to hospital.

A video of Beyoncé and JAY-Z's daughter, Blue Ivy Carter at an art auction was leaked showing the six-year-old doing some bidding on behalf of her parents for a $19K piece of art.

She knew exactly what was happening, she had the paddle in her hand....
