A fan who attended last night’s West Virginia football game against Baylor is in the hospital, after climbing a wall and falling to the Milan Puskar Stadium concourse.
According to various reports, the 49-year old man got into a “verbal altercation” with other fans around him, leading him to scale the stadium wall.
He fell, and was taken to Ruby Memorial Hospital for treatment. Right now, the extent of his injuries are unknown.
More on the fan’s status after the West Virginia football game, from WBOY:
According to WVU officials, a 49-year old male fan in Section 134 scaled and then intentionally jumped over the wall of the South Concourse area following a series of verbal altercations with others nearby. He fell onto the concrete concourse below.
Contemporary Services Corporation Event Staff, University Police, State Police and emergency crews responded immediately to the scene. The male was taken to Ruby Memorial Hospital for treatment.
There are no reports of the extent of any injuries. The male’s name has not been released at this time.
