Report: Bills fan who fell from upper deck fired from job

By Ryan Wilson | CBSSports.com

On Sunday during the Jets-Bills game, the man identified as Rob Hopkins by WKBW News thought it would be a swell idea to slide down the rail along the edge of the upper deck of Ralph Wilson Stadium only to lose his balance and fall to the seats below. Amazingly, he came away with only a shoulder injury, but Hopkins landed on another man who sustained a head injury.

Behold the moving-pictures proof:

Here's a wider shot (look in the upper left corner of the frame):

Monday, the Bills officially banned Hopkins from ever returning to the stadium, and by Tuesday Hopkins had lost his job at Eric Mower and Associates, according to WKBW.

"EMA is very concerned about Sunday's incident at the Buffalo Bills' game and we are relieved that the injured were released from the hospital," the company said in a statement. "Rob Hopkins is no longer employed by EMA."

Law enforcement sources told WKBW that Hopkins could also face criminal charges.
