Lucky escape for Harlem Globetrotter as backboard collapses and shatters on top of him

Who knew basketball could be so dangerous?

HARLEM GLOBETROTTER WILLIAM ‘Bill’ Bullard was blessed to come away with a cut about the eyebrow after a slam dunk brought the backboard down on top of him.

During a recent exhibition game in Honduras, Bullard holds onto the rim after scoring before the structure comes crashing down — with the backboard glass shattering upon impact.

Luckily, he wasn’t seriously injured.
