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

The fan, who hasn’t been identified, died from his injuries, Pittsburgh Police said.

It’s not known what caused the man to fall.

Huhn said he was left in “awe” at how medics and stadium staff responded.

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

He said: “We are working with local authorities and helping their investigation into the matter.

“We are sending our thoughts and prayers to the guest’s family.”

The Steelers narrowly lost the game 24-20.

A woman, 48, plunged to her death after falling from an escalator following a Kenny Chesney gig at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado on August 30.

It’s believed she was sitting on an escalator railing at the venue when she plunged to the concourse below.

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

Police spokesperson Nate Magee said: “I don’t think anyone pushed her or anything like that.”

Cops also investigated if the woman was drunk.

The investigation surrounding her death remains ongoing.

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

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

“For the lady who came to share that love, there are no words. For her friends and family’s loss, I grieve with them and for them.”

And, concertgoer Hugo Sanchez, 32, died after falling almost 40 feet following The Weeknd’s gig at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field in July.
