A fan is in critical but stable condition after falling from the second deck to the first deck at Oracle Arena during a fight Sunday night in Oakland, Calif.
The incident took place after the Cleveland Cavaliers capped a 3-1 NBA Finals deficit to defeat the Golden State Warriors and capture the city’s first professional championship in 52 years.
The fan fell off a railing after he was pushed by another fan during the fight, the East Bay Times reported. According to a statement from Oracle Arena, the man who fell is in his early 20s and was “immediately attended to by Arena personnel and paramedics and transferred to a nearby hospital.”
