Little Lakers Fan Loses His Life: 2-Year Old Plunges 50 Feet To His Death From Luxury Suite After Crawling Out Of Parents Sight

- By Bossip Staff

Luxury  Suites at the Staples Center

This is so sad. A toddler suffered fatal injuries last night after a tragic tumble from a luxury suite at the Staples Center shortly after the Lakers defeated the Golden State Warriors 117-89.

The parents of a 2-year-old who died after plunging 50 feet from a Staples Center luxury suite had lost sight of their son and were searching for him when they learned he had fallen, said sources familiar with the investigation.

The boy, Lucas Anthony Tang, had been crawling around the suite during the Lakers’ game against the Golden State Warriors, sources said. At some point, his parents noticed he was missing and began to look for him.

They did not know then that their son, who would have turned 3 in January, had fallen. Witnesses at the game told The Times that the boy was moving his arms, legs and head before paramedics took him out on a stretcher.

A spokesman for AEG, the company that manages Staples Center, said he had no comment at this time.

The death is being investigated by the LAPD’s abused-child unit, a standard practice that officials said does not necessarily mean a crime has been committed.

We’re still trying to understand how this happened. Those suites are blocked in by a low wall of glass that should have been high enough to prevent a toddler from climbing over. Something doesn’t seem right about this.

Better preventative measures should have been in place, it shouldn’t take something like this happening for them to build an effective barrier.

Poor baby.

    nothing wrong with the barriers. I don’t have kids but everyone knows toddlers are climbers and should never be left alone. These parents were negligent. bizzy boozing it out in the luxury suite than caring for their kid.

    How horrible and sad. Poor baby suffered unbearable fright and then pain before dying. The parents should not have let them out of there sight that high up regardless of the barrier. I won’t diss them, they are going to suffer this for the rest of their lives already. I think the baby might have climbed on a bag, chair and then fell. I also wonder why no one else spoke up if they saw the toddler wandering around?

    I’ve been in those suites several times and it scares me every time. after having 2 drinks and walking in heels I avoid that lower row of seating. I have also taken my four year old a few times and I never let him out of arms reach because of this. Such a tragedy.

    Can someone please tell me why we’re discussing race here…ignorant bastards

  • Mrs. Rance

    None of this makes sense. Boxes are small. How do you loose site of your child long enough for him to scale the wall around the box? And since when do children who are darn near 3 crawl around? I think that child may have gotten a little help over that wall.
