According to New Jersey State Police, a 42-year old man fell over 20 feet from an escalator as he was leaving MetLife stadium following the New York Giants' 27-23 win over the Washington Redskins.
Sgt. Adam Grossman told the Associated Press that the man fell over the side of an escalator and fell onto a metal stage below. It is unclear at this time what caused the fall. The man was airlifted to Hackensack University Medical Center and was in critical condition when he arrived.

Prayers, well wishes, etc..

Crazy -- As we were leaving yesterday, there were tons of ambulances and police cars racing toward the stadium. I guess that's what they were racing toward . . . .

Sounds like it, and I'm glad you didn't have to witness the incident, that must have been awful for anyone who saw.
Hope this guy makes it out of this OK. Seems like they had a very fast response so that's definitely a positive.
