Fan Dies at Trail Blazers Game After Collapsing in Stands

Christopher Trotman/Getty Images(PORTLAND, Or) -- Tragedy struck the game between the Dallas Mavericks and Portland Trail Blazers last night as a female fan collapsed during the fourth quarter and later died.

Sandra Zickefoose, 67, received immediate medical attention after she fell unconscious in the lower bowl of the arena and was soon rushed to a local hospital. 

Zickefoose and her husband had been season ticket holders of the Trail Blazers since 2011, according to the team.

The Trail Blazers released a statement after hearing the news of Zickefoose's death:

"The Portland Trail Blazers, our players and Rose Quarter staff are saddened to learn of Ms. Zickefoose's death, and extend our deepest condolences to her husband Michael Cowan, and their family. We are grateful to all on-site medical personnel, other first responders and the medical professionals seated near Ms. Zickefoose who administered treatment and assistance during last night's emergency. We also thank Trail Blazers fans for their tremendous outpouring of support and concern."
