Orlando Magic cheerleader injured during Tuesday routine

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

An Orlando Magic cheerleader was injured on Tuesday, when she fell and landed on her head during a performance between the first and second quarters.

An Orlando Magic cheerleader was injured on Tuesday, when she fell on her head during a performance between the first and second quarters of Orlando's game against the New York Knicks.

The cheerleader left the court on a stretcher with her neck immobilized, in what was described by those in attendance as a "scary scene." Alan Hahn called it a "hard fall" after falling off of her teammates shoulders.

It's unknown if the cheerleader was a member of Orlando's cheerleading squad, or if she's an acrobat.

Luckily for the young woman and her friends and family, the injured and immobilized dancer was seen waving her hands to the crowd as she was being carted off the court, which led to her receiving applause from both teams as well as the crowd.

Hopefully, she avoided serious injury and is able to make a full and quick recovery -- and is able to get back to cheering and performing acrobatic tricks.
