Fan dies of heart attack during 49ers’ Levi’s Stadium debut


There was news coming out of yesterday’s 49ers debut in Levi’s Stadium even worse than the score.

According to the Associated Press, a fan died after suffering a heart attack during the third quarter.

The Santa Clara Fire Department said the unnamed man received CPR and was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Two construction workers also died there during the construction of the massive new stadium last year.

    No room for stupid or insensitive comments here. Tragic and very sad – thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

    Not a single construction worker died during the construction of the Empire State Building back in 1930. The building was completed in 1 year…

    If I were to pass on, while attending my favorite team’s first game in their new stadium, well let’s just say I could think of worse ways for my life to end. I say this as someone whose end is closer than my beginning.

    It always sucks for the survivors in the family, but my kids would take solace knowing that I died while doing one of my favorite things on this planet…it could have been worse.
