and nurses treat the injury.
The accident took place in the final competition while
the Twister Cheer team from Chiang Mai Rajabhat University was performing.
The performance had run for only three minutes when the student fell after

can happen. This competition did not allow athletes to perform risky acts
and there were four persons supporting the pyramid, not just three as in the
