A 27-year-old man died after falling from an escalator following the Pittsburgh Steelers' game at Acrisure Stadium Sunday.

The man, Dalton Ryan Keane, of Monaca, was identified by the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office on Monday, according to WXPI Channel 11 News.

According to a statement from the Pittsburgh Public Safety Department, police and EMS responded at around 4:45 p.m., to administer care on the scene.

After being transported in critical condition, Keane died from his injuries, the agency said.

Keane fell an estimated 40 feet, near Gate C of the stadium, according to KDKA-TV.

The Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Violent Crime Unit is handling the investigation, according to the Pittsburgh Public Safety Department.

The Steelers, who lost to the New York Jets on Sunday, made their debut at the stadium on Oct. 7, 2001. It was initially called Heinz Field, but in July, Acrisure purchased naming rights for 15 years to the 68,000 seat stadium, according to Sports Illustrated.
