A fan at Sunday’s New York Jets-Pittsburgh Steelers game tragically died following a fall on an escalator at Acisure Stadium.
The Pittsburgh Dept. of Public Safety said police and emergency services were alerted after a male fell shortly after the end of the Jets 24-20 victory the Steelers.
Paramedics administered care on site before the victim was transported to the hospital in critical condition. He died shortly thereafter. The man’s identity has not been released.
“We are aware of an unfortunate incident that occurred inside Acrisure Stadium today,” the Steelers said in a statement. “We are working with local authorities and helping their investigation into the matter. We are sending our thoughts and prayers to the guest’s family.”
