Another dancer went down Monday on ABC’s "Dancing With the Stars," suffering an injury during the live broadcast, People magazine reported.

Cheryl Burke told the publication she "felt something rip" in her upper inner thigh and pelvic region when she crashed while dancing with partner Chris Jericho. After the cameras stopped, Burke got attention from medics and had the injury iced. During interviews after the show, she was noticeably in pain.

The judges approved of the dance, giving the pair 23 points. Tonight will determine whether they remain in the competition. Burke indicated that she would dance through the pain if necessary.

The incident follows a mishap on the show last week, in which Maksim Chmerkovskiy was hurt in an accident while dancing with Kirstie Alley.
