[Pro Bowl Streaker Did It For Ailing Cousin]
Katrina Torres ran across the field at Aloha Stadium during the Pro Bowl game yesterday and drew cheers from the crowd, but Katrina Torres did not do it for them or herself. She was keeping a promise to a loved one who needed a lift. Manolo Morales shares the story of the 23 year old student. Manolo, she could have gone to jail, so why did she do it?
Well, she said she did it for a good cause, Joe. She did it for a cousin who always wanted to go to the Pro Bowl but was paralyzed in a motorcycle accident two years ago.
It happened in the fourth quarter and our camera on the sideline briefly caught Torres jumping in from the stands into the end zone.

They made the touch down and all the security turned to look and I just jumped over the wall and once I hit the ground, I knew I wasn’t going to stop. So I just kept running.
Network cameras turned away from it as it is usually the case. Those in stands caught it with their cellphone cameras, but the few seconds Torres got on National TV meant the world to her cousin Gary, who was watching in New Mexico.
He can’t talk, but he was just smiling a lot and just like fist pumping. They said as soon as we saw you jump, he was just – his face was lit up and he was just fist pumping and stuff. So, I mean that made it so worth it for me.

Gary got into motorcycle accident two years ago and he is now paralyzed and can’t talk. He always wanted to go to the Pro Bowl and was supposed to go this year, but it was too difficult. So Torres, a New Mexico native, who moved their five years ago promised him that she would run across the field for him. She even had the phrase “I did it for Gary”, written on her back.
I just wanted to keep my promise you know, stay true to my word and I had told my mom, I told my aunty, my grandma. I was like, okay, I am going to do this. You know you guys might have to bail me out and they were so for it.
As it turns out no one had to bail her out. After security guards caught her, team captain Deion Sanders heard her story and came to the rescue.
I mean, Deion Sanders comes running behind us. He said, hey don’t arrest her – like she – that was really cooling. Just don’t arrest her, if you arrest her I am going to bail her right out.
Torres says she was ready to go to jail if she had to knowing that if it made her cousin smile, it would have been worth it.

What Torres did is illegal. She may not be going to jail but she has been punished. Torres is banned from Aloha Stadium for a year. I called the stadium authority and it had no comment on the incident. Manola Morales, KHON2 News.
