It took me a while to figure out it wasn't THE Madison Square Garden but rather A Madison Square Garden.

For a minute there I thought the Knicks were going to have a new part-owner.

On a final note, McComish lost the match that night due to 'injury default' but his opponent, showing good sportsmanship, wanted him to have the winner's medal. He gave it to Madison's head coach who then passed it along to McComish.

That was pretty awesome of him.

Looks like his opponent was also the first to jump in and help remove the light.

This is how I know this story is completely fabricated, with CGI and all that. The newscasters said the parents do not plan on suing.

or if the kid had still been standing up rather than down on all fours... taking all the weight on his head/neck/spine... could have been a very different ending.

Hey, that's my hometown of 7,000 people - It only took 10 years to make Fark! I've actually wrestled right there! The ref was my coach 20 years ago!

Smeggy Smurf: something something ethnic slur rigged something something


Yeah... there's not really non-Whites there. It's not racist, it's just cold. But yes, that's basically Home-Depot-quality halogen lights strapped to some conduit. They turn off all the other lights in the gym and pretend it's a big arena. LONG standing tradition in this small town. No idea how they hang it from the false ceiling, but they will probably do it differently now.

or they could switch to 'real' wrasslin and have folding chairs and fluorescent light bulbs nearby for the wrasslers to break over one another's head.

Drywall screws in the hanging ceiling framing is how my fil does it. I have redone all the lights he did after the light in the hallway fell like that. If the kid was bleeding from the head, he should've walked over to the camera and trash talk the opponent about a rematch.

McComish lost the match that night due to 'injury default'

Seriously, they actually gave him a loss? Can't they just call it a tie? Or maybe just call it a "no decision"? Or they couldn't have moved the match to another night? Ya, I understand that rules are rules and sometimes things just don't go the way you want them to, but come on. What if both of them had been under the light when it fell and neither could continue? Would they both be losers?

I didn't know you can lose a wrestling match even when an 80 pound gymnasium light falls on you.   Injury default?  The dude wasn't injured by the other wrestler.  He needed to get stitches because the glass from the light cut his head.  Maybe spend less time awarding undeserved wins to wrestlers and more time building your gym properly.  I'd be pretty pissed about that if I was him.

They probably have every right to sue, which is the worst part. For one thing, that lighting setup was just stupidly overdramatic and unnecessary for high school sports - and for another I can pretty well guess that it wasn't correctly installed or safety'd.

I like the ref. His arm gets the smackdown from that thing as it fell, but he turns right back around and helps lift, and even has a really calm demeanor about the whole thing.

The timing was awesome. The ref points, he gets down, the thing falls. 1-2-3

What a great story:

1. Seems like an average nice high school kid in the interview.
2. Miraculously the injuries were quite minor.
3. The kid is not going crazy about how the school should have done its lighting properly, and how he has all this "pain and suffering" and someone has got to pay!! They are not suing the school district.
4. He "lost" due to injury or whatever, but he's not going crazy over that either, because hey, he's alive and well, his opponent gave him the medal, and you know what, it's JUST high school wrestling.

May everyone involved in this story have a long life and prosper, and may they do a better job with the lighting in future.

To be fair, I have a feeling that if this kid had been seriously hurt there would eventually be lawsuits as to who was ultimately responsible.

But ya, it is kind of nice when you are able to walk away with a few bumps and bruises you don't get all sue happy over it. And yes, both this kid and the one who was named the winner both showed a lot of class.

If he was seriously hurt, then of course he should sue. Litigation is not inherently bad, but it should be reserved for when actual harm is done. He would probably have a case under the current circumstances, but it is nice to see that the family is not taking that route considering that the injuries were minor and the kid is all right.

In HS did tech work/stage hand /AV, whatever you want to call it.

Had a big, dumb mother farker rig a scene fly. He thought if he could control it, all was good even if he had to turn the fly tension up (never EVER change the fly tension without telling people).

During a dress rehearsal l, in my 145 lb glory, wound up 10' over the catwalk one arm holding the fly cable, one arm holding the next clamped fly cable, yelling for someone to close the cam for the loose fly.
