MSU Cheerleader Hospitalized After Hard Fall

LANSING (WWJ) – A Michigan State University cheerleader is in stable condition after falling to the court during a timeout in the first half of Wednesday night’s Michigan State-Florida State game at the Breslin Center.

Spartan cheerleader Taylor Young fell several feet while performing a stunt and landed awkwardly on her face. ESPN’s Mike Tirico described what happened.

“It was dominoes. One fell, then another fell into the arm of a male cheerleader that was holding her up, and then she went down… coming down awkwardly on her head and neck area,” said Tircio.

She stayed face-down on the ground, motionless, for several minutes until medical personnel put her on a stretcher.

“As happens in any sporting event, the athletic training staff and doctors and EMS folk on hand have full understanding on how to immobilize someone and take the greatest care,” said Tircio.

Young, a 20-year-old junior from the Muskegon area, was carted off on a backboard, giving a “thumbs up” sign as she left.  She is expected to be okay.

The Spartans won the game 65-49.
