A tragedy occurred in the most bizarre way Tuesday night up in Alburgh, Vermont.

Per a post by TMZ Sports, 60-year-old Russell Giroux had passed away from injuries sustained after being involved in a fight with several other parents at a seventh- and eighth-grade boys basketball game between Alburgh and St Albans schools.

As you see in the clip below, several parents, including Giroux, came out on to the court and starting swinging punches and kicking each other. The kids playing in the game looked on and even tried to pull their parents out of the pile.

Local authorities, including the Vermont State Police, state the Giroux suffered injuries in the fight and was transported to a local hospital. Sadly however, he passed away at the facility. His body will be examined to determine the cause of death.

As a result of the events and Giroux’s untimely death, the brawl and incident are both currently under investigation. No arrests have been made as of present time.
