A scary scene unfolded at Nissan Stadium during the third quarter of Sunday’s game featuring the New England Patriots and Tennessee Titans when a fan fell through an awning above the home team’s tunnel.
According to USA Today, 37-year-old Thomas Carrico was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. Metro Police released a statement saying he is in stable, but critical condition.
People who witnessed the incident said Carrico lost his balance during a T-shirt toss the Titans cheerleaders were doing when a shirt landed on top of an awning.
?Next thing I saw was a guy falling through the netting,? an NFL employee told USA Today.
The Titans released the following statement:
“At today?s game, an adult fan fell from the lower bowl seating area to the ground. The fan received attention from emergency personnel on the scene and was transported to a local hospital.”
