It wasn’t exactly how a UCLA cheerleader envisioned the stunt would play out.
During a timeout of Thursday night’s men’s basketball game between UCLA and Oregon, Bruins cheerleader Sophie Lellis-Petrie took two bad falls.
The first came when she fell off the pyramid and landed hard on her tailbone.

Never miss a local story.
A rescuer carried her off the court, but tripped on what appeared to be a loose bag and he fell right on top of the cheerleader.
It was all good in the end for Sophie and the team.
She was OK and the 10th-ranked Bruins rallied from a 19-point deficit to defeat the No. 5 Ducks 82-79 in a Pac-12 Conference game.
Sophie, a senior majoring in statistics, was back on the court to witness the comeback.
