A Broncos fan was taken to the hospital from Sports Authority Field at Mile High after falling off an escalator on Thursday night, authorities confirmed to CBS4 in Denver.

Police said the fan could have sustained "serious bodily injuries" as a result of his fall.

However, in good news the fan was "conscious and breathing" when he was taken to the hospital according to police.

Unfortunately at this time there's not a ton of information about the fan either: police, per CBS4, haven't released the man's identity or his age.

Additionally authorities haven't said whether or not alcohol was a factor in the fan falling off the escalator.

It appears the escalator in question was roped off by authorities:

Additionally, police are seeking witnesses who may have seen what happened when the fan fell.
