We often take for granted just how dangerous cheerleading can be. Because there is always so much other stuff going on at sporting events, and because people show up to watch those other things and not the cheerleading, the stuff that these guys and girls do often goes unnoticed. There is a reason that cheerleading is its own sport, though. The things that it incorporates (stands, jumps, etc.) are very difficult and very risky.
Folks realized just how risky on Tuesday night when, during New York Knicks versus Orlando Magic showdown, a cheerleader ended up falling on her head.

Fortunately, as you saw in the video, the girl ended up being okay.
