Fans witnessed a terrifying moment at the Cleveland Cavaliers game Thursday night as LeBron James barreled into the crowd, taking out the wife of a PGA golfer.

The collision happened with just five minutes left in the game as James scrambled for a loose ball, diving right into Ellie Day, the wife of Jason Day. 

Ellie, taking the brunt of James' dive, fell backward. She was taken out of the arena on a stretcher, accompanied by applause.

"Obviously her health is very important and hopefully she's doing well," James said after the game. "The guys told us she's doing great now. But going for a loose ball, I was just trying to keep a possession going and hate that that was the end result of it."

James tweeted around midnight, saying he hoped the pair will come to another game soon. 

Ellie was released from the hospital early Friday.

The Cleveland Cavaliers held off Oklahoma City 104-100, ending the Thunder's six-game winning streak.
