Sports Reporter Hurt when Fans Storm the Court

A Reporter was hurt when Iowa state fans stormed the basketball court after a comeback win over Iowa.

Randy Peterson of the Des Moine Register was injured as he got mowed down by fans running onto the court after the game. His leg in an air cast and Peterson on a stretcher is how he ended up leaving the game.

But he did take to Twitter and showed while his leg was broken, his sense of humor remained intact:

Iowa State athletic director Jamie Pollard released this statement via Twitter:

"In fairness, we still do not know exactly what happened. However, at this point our thoughts are focused on Randy and his wife Patty, who is battling cancer. he is our beat reporter and Patty and he are both very good friends of our program. Coach Prohm and I have both personally spoken with Randy and have assured him we will do whatever we can do to help them both through what they are dealing with."
