Boy Dies from Fall at Lakers Game
A young boy, believed to be 2 or 3 years old, died after he fell from an upper-level suite during a Los Angeles Lakers game against the Golden State Warriors at Staples Center in L.A.
The boy was inside a high-level luxury suite when he plunged 50 feet. Witnesses said the boy was moving his arms and legs when he was placed on a stretcher. He was then taken to USCMedical Center, where he died from his injuries, Sgt. Frank Alvelais said.
The boy's name has not been released.
The Los Angeles Times says that security officials were seen taking photographs an hour after the game ended. One initial news report said the boy was taking photographs when he fell. But that story has been ruled erroneous.
