X-rays negative on fallen cheerleader
By Robbi Pickeral
The North Carolina cheerleader who took a hard fall during the Tar Heels' win over Elon on Thursday night was released from the hospital after X-rays showed no fractures, a team spokesman said.
With 3:01 left at the Smith Center, the game was delayed when the female cheerleader was knocked off another cheerleader's shoulders when an official inadvertantly bumped into the them. There were a few scary moments, as team trainers and then EMS gathered around her, but she was eventually helped off the court with an apparent leg injury.
