A fan fell over a railing at Sports Authority Field, and suffered serious injuries last night.

According to Tom McGhee of the Denver Post, police are investigating the fall, and there is no indication of foul play.

“The man went over the railing,” said Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson. “It appears to be an accident.”

The man fell approximately 15 feet.

Last month, a fan died when he fell off the upper deck at an Atlanta Braves game.
