This is just an awful story.

As a parent, you are in a constant state of worry— that your child will do something unintentional to hurt themselves or be in harm’s way. So I can only imagine the horror and pain this family is going through.

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.

Police Sgt. Frank Alvelais says early Monday that the boy, believed to be 2 or 3 years old, was taken to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center, where he died. The boy’s name hasn’t been released.

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.

KTLA-TV says it’s believed the child was taking pictures when he plunged to the concrete floor.

Prayers go out to the family, I can’t imagine what they are going through.
