Keri Shryock died after falling 25 feet during a Christmas play

A spokeswoman at a Cincinnati mega-church says a Christmas pageant actor who fell about 25 feet during the show’s opening night performance has died.

Crossroads Community Church says 23-year-old Keri Shryock died Thursday morning at University Hospital. A church spokeswoman says Shryock was a graduate student at Xavier University.

Shryock was playing the role of a wise man in a contemporary Nativity story and was suspended by an overhead cable when she fell Wednesday night. A spokeswoman for the church says it’s not clear how the accident happened.

The church says it has canceled the 10 remaining performance of the Christmas show.
