A cheerleader is in hospital after falling and hitting her head on the floor during the first half of an NBA basketball game between the Orlando Magic and the New York Knicks.
Jamie Woode, 31, lost her footing when she was lifted up on to a team member's shoulders and a horrified crowd watched her plunge to the ground.
The Magic stunt performer was transferred to a nearby hospital Orlando Regional Medical Center where she was breathing on her own and moving her extremities, according to paramedics who attended to her.
