ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A cheerleader and stunt team member is in stable condition after falling on her head during a performance at an Orlando Magic game.

In a statement released by the Magic on Wednesday, the family of 31-year-old Jamie Woode says she suffered three vertebrae fractures and a broken rib. But there were no signs of neurological damage and she's expected to make a full recovery.

Woode lost her footing and fell to the floor during a routine between the first and second quarter of the Magic's 99-89 loss to the New York Knicks on Tuesday night.

She was carted off on a stretcher, but waved her hands as she was wheeled away.

The Magic Stunt Team is comprised mostly of former UCF cheerleaders and is contracted for performances by the team.
