A two-year-old boy fell to his death from a third-deck luxury suite at Los Angeles' Staples Center on Sunday night. KTLA.com reports that Lucas Anthony Tang of Garden Grove, Calif., dropped approximately 50 feet shortly after the conclusion of an NBA game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Golden State Warriors. Tang was transported to the USC Medical Center, where he later died, Sgt. Frank Alvelais told CNN.
Witness said the boy was still moving his legs and arms as he was put on a stretcher, according to KTLA. The Los Angeles Times reports Tang's death is being investigated by the LAPD's abused-child unit, although it remains unclear how the boy plunged over the low wall that fronts the luxury box.
