Reliant Stadium Fan Injured
During the Miami Doplhins and Houston Texans season opener on Sunday a fan was injured when a large sign struck his head. The LED sign suddenly fell on the fan during halftime at Reliant Stadium, reportsFOX Sports.
Stadium officials are investigating the reason why the sign came loose and fell. Officials are uncertain as to how the sign broke free of its mounts. The injured fan was brought to an area hospital for treatment for his injuries. None of the injuries have been reported to be life threatening.
Witnesses say they were about to yell for the Houston Texans players when they heard a loud noise and saw a large metal item fall and strike the victim’s head.
“It was scary, nobody knew what was happening,” one witness explained to Inquisitr. “The Texans were coming down here and everybody was getting ready to yell and we heard a huge noise, saw this huge metal thing bounce off this guy’s head.”
“Just fell right down on his head, caught one guy pretty bad, he was bleeding pretty good down his face,” another witness said of the incident. “I’ve seen a few things fall but that’s the first time I’ve ever seen anything like that fall.”
This accident comes just weeks after another fan fell to his death at Reliant Stadium. Police believe that the victim, Jonathon Glenn Kelly, may have slipped off an escalator handrail.
