An unidentified fan was injured Sunday after falling from the 300-level seats at Buffalo's Ralph Wilson Stadium during the Bills game against the Jets.
WGRZ in Buffalo, an NBC affiliate, reported that the person landed on another fan in the 200 level and that both were taken to the hospital. According to the Associated Press, the the fan who plummeted injured his shoulder, while the person that he landed on sustained a head injury.
The initial fan appeared to be attempting to slide down a railing in the upper deck, when he lost his balance and tipped backward. The game was played in blustery conditions -- Jets kicker Nick Folk missed a first-half field goal on account of a gust of wind that pushed the ball well wide.
A video of the fan falling, posted on Vine, can be seen below. CBS inadvertently aired the incident in a wide shot from the far end zone. (Warning: Video may be disturbing to some viewers.)
