A man who went to see The Weeknd's concert on Thursday, July 14, has been reported dead after he reportedly lost his balance and fell 40 feet off an escalator rail he was sitting on. The incident happened at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field.

Hugo Sanchez, 32, reportedly attended the "Blinding Lights" singer's concert at the Lincoln Financial Field on Thursday, July 14, the R&B artist's first stop on his After Hours Til Dawn Tour.

While at the stadium, at around 10:47 p.m., Sanchez seemingly lost his balance and fell approximately 40 feet down the escalator rail he was sitting on. Sanchez suffered grievous injuries in the fall and was rushed to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital for immediate treatment. However, doctors at the hospital pronounced him dead upon arrival, the Daily Beast reported.

Following the incident, officers revealed that there is no indication of foul play and that the case is being investigated as an accident.

"Hugo was an awesome person. He'd love to travel. He was a good friend," said the victim's friend, Jammal Ransom.

According to Ransom, Hugo leaves behind a legacy of love for his family and a lust for life. He added that one would have a hard time finding anyone with anything bad to say about Sanchez.

"Obviously, have a good time while you're here and make the best of it and all that, but yeah, it's just unfortunate," said Ransom.

In a similar but unrelated incident, a man fell nearly 50 feet to the ground from a sky ride at a Utah amusement park and died on Saturday, Aug. 14, 2021, Latin Times reported.

The horrifying incident happened at Lagoon Amusement Park in Farmington on Saturday, Aug 14, 2021. The victim, a 32-year-old man, was last seen dangling from outside of the park's sky ride's chair with both hands holding on to the safety bar before he fell almost 50 feet to his death.

The man was later airlifted in critical condition to the University of Utah Hospital in Salt Lake City but later succumbed to his fatal injuries.

"We don't know why he did that or what was going on," Wayne Hansen, Farmington Police Chief said. "We just don't know."

A cell phone video captured by a witness showed the man hanging onto the sky ride’s safety bar by his hands as he dangled outside the chair. The man was reportedly alone on the ride and looked calm as the ride traveled high above the park.

“The initial investigation does not indicate any type of mechanical malfunction of the sky ride or the specific car the patient was riding in at the time of the fall,” according to the Farmington Police Department officials.
