Watch a UCLA Cheerleader Get Dumped on Her Head Twice in 15 Seconds

Who says cheerleading isn’t a contact sport?

Early in the second half of Thursday night’s thrilling UCLA vs. Oregon game, a  painful cheerleading accident took place on the court of Pauley Pavilion. It’s the kind of thing that might have only been seen by those in the arena, if not for ESPN. But the worldwide leader made sure this young lady’s most embarrassing moment would go viral, and for that, we are grateful.

As you can see in the video above, the first drop of this blonde Bruin came as she was coming down from being held high above the floor. And the second happened as some would-be Prince Charming slipped while carrying her off the floor. 

If only these dudes would have followed the wise words dispensed at the end of this video by the legend Bill Walton, who says without a hint of irony, “Safety first.”

It wasn’t all carnage on the court in L.A. last night, though. Watch stud Bruins freshman Lonzo Ball do his best Steph Curry impression at the end of the game. As Bill Raftery would say, kid’s got “Onions!”
