A woman was removed from TD Garden on a stretcher after a net hanging above one of the goals fell onto her following the game.

Two women were treated and released from the hospital after Thursday night’s Boston Bruins game when a safety net fell at the TD Garden, officials said.

The two women were taking pictures after the game next to the glass behind the net, which was meant to protect people from errant shots, when they were hit in the head by an “unknown object” about 9:40 p.m., a police report stated.

EMS workers treated the two women, who were in their 20s, for head injuries. Police did not release their names Friday.

When officers arrived at the scene, they saw blood on the ground.

The two women were taken to Massachusetts General Hospital.

Both were conscious and alert, police said. They were later released from the hospital.

The police report did not say what the object was, but noted that officers saw that the safety net was down.

Tricia McCorkle, a spokeswoman for TD Garden, said that the safety net fell unexpectedly and that officials would investigate the accident.

“Our immediate concern is the well-being of these two fans,” said McCorkle in a statement. “Safety of our fans is our top priority.”
