The man’s name has not been released, though police say he was in his mid-30s. He was declared dead at the scene from his injuries.
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.
The death also happened the same day a railing collapsed at the Colts’ game against the Raiders in Indianapolis injuring two fans who were leaning against the barrier above the tunnel leading to Oakland’s locker room. It appeared both fans in Indiana escaped serious injury, stadium officials said.
The stadium will close after the season this year with a $1.2 billion complex set to open for the team in Santa Clara.
Since 2003, according to the AP, more than 24 instances have been reported of fans falling at stadiums across the United States.
