NBA mascot Harry the Hawk suffers wince-inducing railing slip


We never knew being an NBA mascot was this dangerous.

But Harry the Hawk - the mascot for the Atlanta Hawks - showed just how hard a life it can be when he slipped while performing a balancing act during their game against the Boston Celtics.

We cannot begin to imagine how painful that was. We're just hoping that the person inside the suit is a Harriet rather than a Harry...

Here it is from another angle.

Harry was reportedly seen up and walking around later in the game, so we don't think it was anything too serious.

And at least he could console himself with a look at the scoreboard - Atlanta won 89-72.
