Jumbotron Crashes Onto Basketball Court at George Washington University

A Jumbotron crashed onto the basketball court at George Washington University's Charles E. Smith Center in D.C. on Tuesday.

Photos show the massive screens askew on the arena floor.

A crew was doing maintenance on a scoreboard when the Jumbotron "dropped unexpectedly from its lowered position just above the floor," the university said on Twitter.

Luckily, no one was hurt.

The university is evaluating whether the accident did any damage to the court or screens.

George Washington hosted the Washington Mystics during the WNBA playoffs. Game 3, on Wednesday, already was scheduled to be played at George Mason University.
