Reports: Sign falls on fan at Reliant Stadium

HOUSTON — A fan was injured Sunday when a panel from an LED sign at Reliant Stadium fell on him, according to reports.


Two Houston news stations reported the fan was taken to the hospital during the Houston Texans' game against the Miami Dolphins with injuries not believed to be life-threatening.


The incident comes less than two weeks after a fan fell to his death while allegedly trying to slide down the handrailing of an escalator. That man, identified by authorities as 25-year-old Jonathan Kelly, fell three stories from the escalator Aug. 30 during a preseason game at Reliant Stadium.


Reliant Stadium, which is owned by Harris County, opened in 2002.
