Individuals who fell after a railing collapsed at FedEx Field on Sunday refuted a statement by the Washington Football Team suggesting they were offered on-site medical attention.
According to a report from Tim McManus of ESPN, the four individuals suffered minor injuries and said the Washington Football Team “didn’t ask if anyone was hurt and sure as hell didn’t ask if anyone needed medical attention.”
The railing was on the side of the tunnel that led to the visitor locker room at FedEx Field. It collapsed just as Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts was exiting the field following the team’s 20-16 win.
Washington released a statement Sunday evening, stating, “To our knowledge, everyone involved was offered onsite medical evaluation and left the stadium of their own accord. We’re very glad no one appears to have been seriously injured. The safety of our fans and guests is of the utmost importance and we are looking into what occurred.”
This wasn’t the only incident at FedEx Field this season. In Washington’s season-opening loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, a pipe connected to rainwater storage broke and drenched a small section of fans.
