A man has died after falling off a railroad track at the opening show of The Weeknd Tour in Philadelphia.
The concert player, who has not yet been identified, suffered a head trauma after falling about 40 feet into Lincoln Financial Field on July 14.
Officials say the 32-year-old was taken to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital shortly after 11pm and pronounced dead a few minutes after midnight.
The tour’s promoter, Live Nation, was also responsible for Travis Scott’s Killer Astroworld Festival Promo As a result, 10 people were killed and hundreds injured.
After investigation, the police told the outlet that the man’s fall appeared to have been accidental, with “no suspicion of fault”, Philadelphia Inquirer mentioned.
Bob Lange, senior vice president of communications for the Philadelphia Eagles, who runs Lincoln, said the accident likely occurred after the concert ended while people were leaving the building.
The Post has reached out to the Philadelphia Police Department, Live Nation, and Bob Lange for more comments.
