Two people were injured when one fell from the third deck of Ralph Wilson Stadium onto the other during Buffalo’s home game against the New York Jets, according to the Associated Press.

The man who fell reportedly sustained a shoulder injury, while the person he fell upon received a head injury. Both men were treated immediately and taken to the hospital for observation, according to the report.

Here is the team's statement about the incident:

"In the second quarter of this afternoon’s Bills/Jets game a fan fell from the 300 level to the 200 level and landed on another fan. Bills staff responded to the incident immediately and were soon joined by emergency personnel. Both individuals were then taken to South Side EMS inside the stadium and both were later transported to a local hospital for further observation. These are all the details we have at this time."

While the Associated Press story does not reveal how this incident occurred, posted a video of the mishap, which was captured by a CBS camera as the second quarter began.

Details about what led to this accident will likely to emerge very soon, however, a video was posted on that shows a man sliding down a railing before falling to the deck below.
