Errant pass from Bobcats’ Gerald Henderson hits woman in the head, drops her to the floor (VIDEO)

Nov 30, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

It’s not often a ball gets fired a couple of rows into the stands by a player trying to make a pass, but when it does, it can come with some speed and if the fans in attendance don’t happen to be paying attention, you get the following result.

That’s going to leave a mark.

We of course hope the woman is OK, but it just goes to show that if you’re going to be that close to the court, you need to keep at least one eye on the action.

    How about the Costanza look alike one row in front of her with his half arse attempt at putting his hand up to get the ball? Looks like an elementary school kid who thought he knew an answer to a question and a split second later realizes he doesn’t.

    When the 5th row is 2 feet from the court, I’m surprised you don’t see more of this.

    Sweet, right on the beak.

    The crazy part is that we cannot blame the woman for staring at her smart phone, instead she was merely walking to her seat, although I still think you ought to be paying attention in that situation.

    No one sits in the lower bowl unless they’re celebrity fans and/or they want to be seen.

    pretty funny but who the hell was he trying to pass to? it looks as if he was aiming right for her. fans should be alert but should not expect a “pro” player to just randomly throw the ball into the stands.

    I’m sure she was alright but dangit that was funny! Sorry. The 1st comment by nextmanup is freakin hilarious and true. But seriously, who the f was Henderson trying to pass it to??

      I don’t know how basketball works, but on my season tickets to the local AHL hockey team, it says right on the back of the ticket to watch for sticks, pucks, or any other flying objects while the game is in session. I’m pretty sure basketball has something similar.

        As a matter of fact, they’d be pretty dumb not to.
