Boy falls 10 feet onto football field
TEMPE, Ariz. -- A small boy fell from the stands onto the field in the closing minutes of a game between UCLA Bruins and Arizona State Sun Devils.
The child fell about 10 feet over a rail onto a green tarp covering the grass in the end zone shortly after UCLA scored a touchdown on that end of the field.
Stadium officials attended to the boy for several minutes before one worker carried him off. The boy didn't cry, but sat upright in the worker's arms and didn't appear to be seriously injured.
A 2-year-old boy at a Los Angeles Lakers game died on Sunday from head injuries suffered in a fall from a skybox.
