According to the Baltimore Sun, a 48-year-old man remains in serious condition on Monday morning after falling from the upper deck at M&T Bank Stadium during the first half of Sunday’s Jets-Ravens game.

The man’s brother identified him as Dan Clark, 48, of Ferndale. Clark fell on the steps in upper deck inside the seating bowl, team spokesman Kevin Byrne said in an email response.
The circumstances leading to the incident are unclear, and initial information incorrectly stated he may have fallen out of the upper deck.

Clark’s brother, Jim Clark, went to the bathroom with around 4 minutes to go in the first half. Upon returning, he found his brother lying “in a pool of blood,” surrounded by stadium staff at the bottom of the staircase in Section 521, where the two had been sitting.

He said Dan Clark was scheduled to undergo brain surgery at Shock Trauma on Sunday night.

This is a very tragic incident, and it’s the third such occurrence in the past two weeks. Another one happened on Sunday at the Oakland Raiders game, when a woman appears to have been attempting to take her own life, but a good samaritan stepped in and broke her fall and she survived.
