A 37-year-old man was taken to the hospital after falling out of the stands at Nissan Stadium during the Patriots and Titans game on Sunday. The fall took place during a t-shirt toss and the man was reportedly in critical but stable condition when he was taken to the hospital.
Via the Tennessean:
Thomas Carrico Jr., 37, of Goodlettsville was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center and was in critical but stable condition Sunday night, Metro Police said in a statement.
On Monday, a Vanderbilt spokeswoman said his condition had been upgraded to stable.
The fall occurred during a T-shirt toss in the third quarter when a shirt landed on an awning in the stadium, a witness said. Police said Carrico lost his balance and accidentally fell over a lower level railing and through the awning that covers the home team tunnel.
Barbara Boske, a Metro Nashville dispatch supervisor, said the agency received an emergency call about 2:20 p.m. reporting that a man at the stadium fell “from a balcony onto the concrete below.” Boske said she could not release more information about the man’s injuries.
Glad to hear he’s recovering well. Now I need to know a couple of things. What was on the t-shirt and did he end up with the freebie he thought was worth falling onto concrete for?
