(Reuters) – American pairs figure skater Ashley Cain suffered a scary fall at the Golden Spin of Zagreb in Croatia on Friday after her partner Timothy LeDuc appeared to lose his grip on her at the end of an overhead lift during their long program.

The back of Cain’s head hit the ice before LeDuc fell on top of her. The 23-year-old initially appeared unconscious when LeDuc lifted her head off the ice but she got up and they completed their program.

U.S. Figure Skating said on Twitter it would provide an update on Cain’s condition when it becomes available.

Cain, who has been skating with LeDuc since May 2016, is the 2018 Four Continents silver medalist and 2017 U.S. national bronze medalist.
