It was announced Thursday that the Los Angeles Rams, quarterback Matthew Stafford and his wife Kelly are covering a photographer’s medical fees after he fell from a stage during the team’s Super Bowl rally.

In addition to her damaged camera, Kelley Smiley fractured her back, according to a GoFundMe website. The Staffords and Rams stepped in to support the journalist, so the event was halted.

Both the Rams and the Staffords apologized for what transpired yesterday in a joint statement received by CBS Los Angeles. “We assured Kelly we’d pay for her hospitalization and replace her cameras. We wish her well.”
