Spectator Falls At Commonwealth Stadium

UK Athletics

The University of Kentucky says that a spectator fell from Commonwealth Stadium's upper deck to the lower deck on Saturday night.

University spokeswoman Katy Bennett confirmed Sunday morning that the accident happened and that a person was taken to nearby UK Medical Center. She did not have immediate details such as the person's gender, if it was a student or whether the accident occurred during or after Kentucky's 45-38 upset victory over South Carolina.

The game drew a season-high crowd of 62,135 and thousands stormed the field to celebrate for about 15 minutes with Kentucky players before leaving.
