Video: NFL fan falls from top tier of stadium after attempting dangerous slide

An NFL fan's attempt to slide down a railing ended in catastrophe on Sunday, as he fell over the side of the highest level of stadium seating.

The Buffalo Bills fan attempted to slide down a railing on the edge of the top deck of the Ralph Wilson stadium, but lost balance and toppled into the tier below.

The un-named fan tumbled onto the area of seating below, surviving his fall but injuring another attendee of the Bills' game against the New York Jets.

Both were taken to hospital, with shoulder and head injuries respectively. Twitter user @jacksessionn posted a picture of the injured fan who fell down a level, saying "he did not speak. Just had that stupid grin as they wheeled him out. Gave a thumbs up. Crowd booed."
