ORLANDO, Fla. (November 14, 2012)—Jamie Woode, 31, a cheerleader and stunt team member, was in stable condition after falling on her head during a performance at an Orlando Magic game.
In a statement released by the Magic on Wednesday, Woode’s family said she suffered three vertebrae fractures and a broken rib, but there were no signs of neurological damage and she's expected to make a full recovery.
Woode lost her footing and fell to the floor during a routine between the first and second quarter of the Magic's 99-89 loss to the New York Knicks on Tuesday night.
She was carted off on a stretcher, but waved her hands as she was wheeled away.
The Magic Stunt Team is comprised mostly of former UCF cheerleaders and is contracted for performances by the team.
