I heard of fans wanting to affect the ballgame, but this one was very risky. A fan jumped from the third level at Oakland Coliseum right before kickoff according to the Mercury News.
The Sheriffs office said the mans identity had not been released at this time, and is listed in serious condition. The incident reportedly took place at 5:30 p.m. Pacific time, a few moments before kickoff.
The Oakland Raiders released a brief statement Thursday evening.
“While we do not have any information on the incident other than what had been reported by media outlets, “our thoughts and prayers are with this gentleman and his family and friends.”
It has not been confirmed whether the jump was some sort of suicide attempt, or foul play.
