Georgia photographer hit on sidelines thanks well-wishers

Chamberlain Smith took to social media on Sunday to thank well-wishers after a frightening sideline incident at the Georgia-Auburn football game.

The photography intern for the UGA Athletic Association was run over by Georgia running back Brian Herrien when he was shoved out bounds in the second quarter of the Bulldogs' 21-14 win at Auburn Saturday. She was kneeling with her camera and was knocked unconscious for a brief time.

Smith, of Ringgold, was taken by ambulance to East Alabama Medical Center after the incident and later released.

Smith later posted on Twitter: “I haven’t had a chance to respond to everyone, but I just wanted to say thank you all so much for the overwhelming outpouring of support in the form of kind comments, messages & prayers! .. last night was very scary, but I’m so glad to be walking away with nothing more than a concussion & some bruises. I will be home resting & recovering for the next several days, but I’m looking forward to being back on the sidelines soon!”
