A GoFundMe page has launched for the Denver Broncos fan who died Monday after falling 60 feet off a railing at Mile High Stadium during the Broncos game against the Houston Texans.
Jason Coy, 36, left behind a wife and children aged 11, 8, 5 and 2 years old and another who is 6 months old, according to the page. The goal is to raise $30,000 for the family’s financial burdens. As of Wednesday morning, the page had already raised more than $8,000.
Coy was sitting on a railing when he lost his balance and fell backward.
In a statement, the Broncos expressed their sympathies for the event.
“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,” the statement read. “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.”
