Sources told KDKA the man fell almost 40 feet before being taken to the hospital in critical condition.

The fan, who has not been identified, died from his injuries, Pittsburgh police said.

It is not known why the man fell.

Witness Lenny Huhn told Channel11, “The medical staff, Pittsburgh police officers and Acrisure staff were on the ball straight away, locking things up and getting people out of the way.”

Huhn said he was “impressed” by the response from medics and stadium staff.

Burt Lauten, a Pittsburgh Steelers spokesman, said the team was aware of an “unfortunate incident.”

He said: “We are working with local authorities and are helping them to investigate the matter.

“We send our thoughts and prayers to the family of the guest.”

The Steelers narrowly lost the game 24-20.

A 48-year-old woman fell to her death after falling off an escalator August 30 after a performance by Kenny Chesney at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado.

It is believed that she was sitting on an escalator railing at the venue when she fell into the hall below.

Cops told the Denver Post they believe the fall was an “accident.”

Police spokesman Nate Magee said, “I don’t think anyone pushed her or anything.”

Police also investigated whether the woman was drunk.

The investigation into her death is ongoing.

Country star Chesney said he was “devastated” to learn of the woman’s death.

He said at the time: “Life is precious. Sharing music brings us together and this love we share makes us so much more.

“There are no words for the lady who came to share this love. For the loss of their friends and family, I mourn with them and for them.”

And concert-goer Hugo Sanchez, 32, died after falling nearly 40 feet following The Weeknd’s performance at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia in July.

He was taken to the hospital before being pronounced dead.

Police said there was no evidence of third-party negligence.
