The Los Angeles Rams recently won the Super Bowl and held a victory celebration this past Wednesday. During the party, a photographer accidentally fell 10 feet off the stage and fractured her spine, with the Rams' star quarterback, Matthew Stafford, showing a curious lack of concern.
The photographer, Kelly Smiley, works for the Rams and other areas sports teams. It appears that Kelly Stafford, the wife of Matthew, handed her phone to Smiley to capture a picture of the couple, and as she was backing up to frame the shot, she stepped backward off the stage, falling 10 feet to the sidewalk below, damaging her equipment and fracturing her spine in the process.
While both Matthew and Kelly Stafford were both clearly startled, only Kelly showed concern in checking on Smiley, while Matthew appeared to mouth "oh my god" or a similar exclamation and casually turned his back on the situation without even motioning for help.
While it's extremely unfortunate that Smiley suffered a severe injury in the fall, thankfully, after the bad press, the Staffords announced they would be covering her medical bills. A GoFundMe was also created in her name and collected almost $50,000 in 24 hours.
