Tuesday evening in a playoff game against the Boston Celtics, the Atlantic Hawks had their trusty mascot Harry the Hawk in the audience. Harry the Hawk is not quite the gymnast he fancies himself to be: the hawk (who is in fact a human in costume) tried to walk across a railing, only to have his private area make close contact with said railing. 

Was Harry the Hawk's pain not visible enough for you? Let's get a better look at the most interesting thing that happened during this athletic game (that saw the Celtics scoring a historically low seven points in the first quarter).

HARRY THE HAWK IS FINALLY DEAD THANK THE LORD

Harry hit that rail hard. It looks like there won't be any little hawks joining Harry anytime soon.

No word on whether this injury will keep Harry out for the rest of the season (hopefully, yes. Mascots are creepy and useless). And it's anyone's guess as to whether the fall was staged or organic—stadium's have been known to prank their spectators.

Harry the Hawk in better days.

Now enjoy some other mascots writhing in pain.
