A man died on Sunday evening during the NFL game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Jets at the Acrisure Stadium in Pittsburgh.

According to the Pittsburgh Public Safety, the man reportedly tumbled from the escalator at around 4:45 p.m. after the Jets-Steelers game. The Jets won, 24-20.

Paramedics responded to the scene and rendered aid to the unnamed man. He was rushed to the hospital in critical condition but eventually died due to injuries, WPXI reported.

“We are aware of an unfortunate incident that occurred inside Acrisure Stadium today,” Steelers spokesman Burt Lauten stated

“We are working with local authorities and helping their investigation into the matter. We are sending our thoughts and prayers to the guest’s family,” he added.

In the latest update, the man was identified as Dalton Keane, 27, of living in Monaca, Pennsylvania. This was confirmed in a separate report by the Post.

The incident remains under investigation and comes three months after a man from the rail of an escalator inside the Eagles’ Lincoln Financial Field during The Weeknd’s show and died on July 14.

However, police said that the incident that happened last July 14 appeared to be accidental.

The incident overshadowed the Jets' comeback win, rallying from a double-digit fourth-quarter deficit to win the game. It was the second time that New York was able to turn the tables on their opponent.

The Jets got a lift from running back Breece Hall who scored from 2 yards out with 16 seconds remaining to score New York’s final 14 points en route to the victory. The Jets' defense had 4 interceptions and Lamarcus Joyner sealed it picking off rookie QB Kenny Pickett as time expired.

It was in the same game where Pickett officially made his debut after relieving Mitch Trubisky. Also debuting for New York in that game was Zach Wilson who figured prominently in several plays.
