The Hawks mascot suffered a low blow Tuesday night during the third quarter of Game 2 of Atlanta’s playoff series with the Celtics.

Harry the Hawk appeared to slip during a balancing act. He was standing on a divider in the stands, jumped, slipped, and took a shot to the crotch.

Red hawk down, red hawk down!

The Hawks Twitter account called in backup for the poor bird.
