Fan Suffers Life-Threatening Fall Prior to ACC Championship Game

From SB Nation's College Football Hub:

"A fan fell from the fourth-floor ramp at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte on Saturday night and is at the hospital with life-threatening injuries, the Charlotte Observer reports. According to the Observer, the fan has been transported to the trauma unit of Carolina's Medical Center with serious injuries after receiving at least some on-site treatment.

The fan fell somewhere between an estimated 40 and 60 feet from a third-story concourse at the stadium, according to reports. The fall took place around 8:30 p.m. ET, which is just about kickoff time, according to when medics first responded to the call.

Police reported that the fan fell outside of the stadium. Identification of the fan is not yet known. It is also not known what caused the fan to fall.

The stadium is hosting the ACC Championship football game between the Florida State Seminoles and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets."
