Fan falls from upper level at Ga. Dome

Posted: Updated:

Two people were transported to the hospital after a man fell from an upper level seat at the Georgia Dome on Friday night during the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game.

The 20-year-old man fell about 35 feet and landed on another person in the mezzanine area, officials said.

Both were transported to Atlanta Medical Center.

The game between Tennessee and North Carolina State was not stopped and many fans said they were unaware that the incident had occurred. More than 65,000 fans were expected to attend the game.

A fan told FOX 5's Chris Shaw that the incident occurred as fans celebrated Tennessee's second touchdown. A fan told FOX 5 that there were more people than seats in that section and it was very overcrowded.

The Georgia World Congress Center Authority Police Department is investigating.
