FAN IN CRITICAL CONDITION AFTER METLIFE FALL

A spectator has been critically injured after falling from an escalator at a height of over 20 feet at Sunday's NFL match-up between New York Giants and Washington Redskins at the MetLife Stadium.

Sgt. Adam Grossman says the 42-year-old man was leaving the stadium in East Rutherford when he fell over the side of the escalator but what caused him to fall is unclear.

The man, who landed on a metal stage, was airlifted from the MetLife Stadium to Hackensack University Hospital and was in critical condition on Sunday night. Grossman says the investigation is ongoing.
