Shaken by video of errant pass, Charlotte Bobcats' Gerald Henderson hopes to find woman who was hit Friday
Charlotte Bobcats guard Gerald Henderson went on Twitter Friday night, hoping to reach the woman who was hit by his errant cross-court pass in the victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.
The woman was walking behind the Bucks’ bench, and was hit on the head. Henderson apologized to her when it first happened, but was rattled by video of the accident that he viewed after the game.
“I hit her pretty hard. I went over and apologized to her, but after looking at that clip enough times, I need to apologize some more,’’ Henderson told the Observer at practice Saturday.
The Bobcats made sure she got medical attention and gave her a pair of signed, game-worn shoes as a gesture.
“I saw it hit her pretty square. I didn’t know if she fell or hit her head or anything. It was pretty brutal,” Henderson said.
It’s not uncommon for courtside fans to come in sudden contact with the game action, but Henderson said this went beyond the norm.
“You get guys jumping into the stands and (fans) spill their drinks. You see passes go over dudes' heads,’ Henderson said. “But very rarely do you see something like that happen. That was one for the ages in a negative way.”
