Skycam Falls Down During Game

One would think the time to fear the sky falling down over our heads was long gone, but for american football players, it seems there's a new reason to wear protection helmets.

During a game, a SkyCam - a camera rig suspended by cables over the playing field, which allows the recording of spectacular images from its vantage point, and zoom along at up to 13m/s (nearly 30 mph) - came tumbling down... barely missing the Iowa sideline player Marvin McNutt!

Looks like players will have to keep an eye up high in the sky from now on... just to be safe. :)
