The fan, a 22-year-old male, was apparently walking too close to the rail on the fourth floor ramp before falling outside the stadium just before kick-off. He is reported as being in very serious condition.

Are there any updates on this situation? Hopefully the poor guy will recover fully. Fingers crossed.

Vital signs are stable but he had severe head trauma. He fell into grass and not concrete and doctors are saying that it saved his life

That's good to know. Where are you getting the updates from?

His mother, who wasn't there, said her son stopped to take a photo and then "slipped over the rail." I'm not sure how that happens. I suspect more information will forthcoming. Apparently, the kid's dad died earlier this year.

I was getting them from Twitter, a local journalists account @TVsJeffSmith
