KC fan takes big fall, is OK

Monday, October 15, 2001

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A fan fell from the top deck of Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, but the Kansas City Chiefs said his injuries did not appear serious.

The man told emergency workers he leaned forward to pick up something and blacked out, Chiefs security director Gene Barr said. He was taken to a hospital.

Four other spectators on the second and first decks received minor injuries when the man landed on them, team spokesman Bob Moore said. They were taken to a hospital as a precaution.

None of the injured fans was immediately identified.

The accident happened during the second quarter of a game with Pittsburgh.
