A 36-year-old Broncos fan fell from a “severe height” while leaving last night’s win over the Texans, and the Denver Medical Examiner’s Office pronounced him dead this afternoon. Jason Coy fell last night at 9:45 p.m. local time, and an emergency crew responded to a 911 call shortly after. Coy was taken to the hospital, where he died of blunt force trauma, per the Denver Post.

The Broncos released a statement this afternoon:

“The Denver Broncos are extremely saddened to learn that Jason Coy, the fan who fell over a stairwell railing at Monday night’s game, has passed away. Along with Stadium Management Company, we extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to his family and friends.

“Providing a safe, enjoyable environment for guests at Sports Authority Field at Mile High is the top priority for the Broncos and SMC. We’re reviewing this tragic incident and will continue to maintain all necessary safety measures for our fans.”


The Denver Police Department is reportedly conducting an accident investigation, and they’ve preliminarily determined that Coy fell from a height of about 60 feet.
