Several fans who were attempting to get an autograph from Warriors star Stephen Curry fell from the stands when a railing gave way at the Utah Jazz’s arena on Wednesday night.

After Curry completed his pregame warmups and headed for the tunnel, fans swarmed the area of the stands nearest the tunnel and leaned over the railing to offer Curry paraphernalia to sign. Four fans, including three minors, fell when a barrier collapsed, nearly landing on top of Curry.

No one was seriously injured, and Curry stayed behind to sign items for the three fans who did not immediately leave for first aid attention.
