Toddler Dies After Fall At Lakers Game

LOS ANGELES - A toddler has died after falling 50 feet from a luxury suite at the Los Angeles Lakers game against the Golden State Warriors in the Staples Center arena.

The 2-year-old, identified as Lucas Anthony Tang of Garden Grove, had crawled away from his parents' sight and they were looking for him when they found out he had fallen, the Los Angeles Times reported on Monday.

Police Sgt. Frank Alvelais said early Monday that the boy was taken to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, where he died.

The boy fell from the third level top tier of the luxury suites several minutes after the Lakers beat the Warriors 117-89 on Sunday night. He was at the game with his parents and 11-year-old sister, the Times reported.

Witnesses told the Times the boy was moving his arms, legs and head before paramedics took him out of arena on a stretcher.

Officer Julie Sohn said Monday the LAPD child abuse unit is investigating because of the boy's age.

KTLA-TV reported that the child was taking pictures when he fell but later said that they couldn't confirm that information.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
