Video: Heat arena promotion goes terribly wrong, woman hit in head by falling door

capture2A promotional event at the American Airlines Arena during Thursday night’s Miami Heat-Dallas Mavericks game took a dangerous turn.

A contestant was brought down to center court to attempt to open a makeshift hotel door in hopes of winning a prize. When the unidentified woman, dressed in a Hassan Whiteside jersey, opened the door and stepped through the doorway, the framework of the door began to tilt, putting her in harm’s way.

Despite the woman’s best efforts to get out of the way, the door came crashing down, seemingly catching her in the side of the head. Luckily, she was OK and seemed to be laughing off the awkward situation while receiving a hug from the Heat’s arena emcee.

The experience wasn’t all bad for the woman, who won a three-day, two-night at Epic Hotel in Miami, a $100 gift card to Area 31 restaurant and a free day of spa service, something that she will likely need.
