Man falls to his death at Texans game

A fan attending the Houston Texans preseason finale against the Minnesota Vikings fell to his death due to apparently horseplay on an escalator, reports KHOU-TV Channel 11 in Houston.

According to witnesses, the man was attempting to slide down the rails of an escalator when he fell. He was taken to a local hospital but died due to the fall from one of the highest levels of the stadium.

Sports Radio 610's website reported that the man was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the fall.
