San Fransisco Fan Dies After Falling During 49ers-Packers Game
It wasn’t a good day for some fans in the NFL. Some witnessed a man fell from a walkway pretty far down to the sidewalk. Of course, alcohol was a factor.
The death came just after kickoff at about 1:30 p.m. in the 49ers’ 34-28 win over Green Bay, police said, and multiple witnesses reported the man appeared to be intoxicated before he fell to a sidewalk. Off-duty medics and police officers gave the man first aid until an ambulance arrived, but he was declared dead from his injuries. Authorities said he appeared to be in his 30s, and his name has not been released.
This accident happened just before another accident in Indianapolis. A railing collapsed at the Colts game, injuring two fans who were leaning against the guard rail above where the tunnel leading to Oakland’s locker room is.
