Our sister paper, OC Weekly, tracked down the identity of the 2-year-old who fell to his death from a luxury box following yesterday's Golden State Warriors-Los Angeles Lakers game at the Staples Center.
The Child was Lucas Anthony Tang of Garden Grove in Orange County.
Tang, who would have turned 3 in January, was wandering about the suite following last night's 117-89 Lakers victory over the Bay Area side. While either the boy or adults were taking photos, Tang somehow overcame the three-foot-high safety barrier and fell 25 to 50 feet from the luxury box. He was pronounced dead at 11:40 p.m.
The Los Angeles Police Department Juvenile Divsion is investigating the accident, as is standard procedure in incidents where child abuse or neglect could have been a factor.
