A Texas man is OK after he fell from the second-level platform at Topgolf in Fort Worth on Saturday. 

His tumble was caught on video posted to Twitter. The man, identified as Jose Vasquez by his cousin, fell into a netting that Dallas-based Topgolf has in place on the upper decks. 

Vasquez's cousin, Nathan, captured the moment on video and tweeted it early Sunday on his account (@EnvyNate). In the 10-second video that has more than 400 retweets as of Wednesday afternoon, the man focused on his swing, whiffed the attempt and proceeded to celebrate like he'd hit the ball, pointing in the distance. He then stepped off the platform and landed in the netting. 

"Don't drink too much and golf," Nathan joked to mySA.com about his clumsy cousin, Jose Vasquez. "He was just laughing it off." 

Topgolf spokesman Morgan Wallace said in a statement that falling off a platform is an extremely rare occurrence at Topgolf. 

"We take safety very seriously and a strong safety track record is critical to our success," he said. 

The Fort Worth Topgolf opened this month. 

In 2013, an Abilene man filed a federal lawsuit against Topgolf at Park Lane in Dallas after he fell from the second level and the net below failed to protect him.
