Euro2020: Fan severely injured after ‘falling from stand’ during England vs Croatia!

A fan has been seriously injured after ‘falling from the stands’ at Wembley during England vs Croatia.

Witnesses said the fan fell just after kick-off at 2.00pm this afternoon, and the stadium’s press team later confirmed that the person was taken to hospital in a serious condition.

An England supporter who witnessed the incident told the Evening Standard: “We saw his legs go over the barrier and then he fell and hit the ground and didn’t move.

“It seemed to take staff ages to get to him. One guy near us who saw the whole thing was crying his eyes out.”

Another said: “I didn’t see it but spoke to some of the guys who did at half time. They were traumatised. He fell from the balcony towards the seats and the concrete.”

A statement from Wembley Stadium reads: “We can confirm that a spectator fell from the stands just after kick off in the match between England and Croatia at Wembley Stadium.

“The spectator was given on-site medical attention and was then taken to hospital in a serious condition.

We will continue to work with UEFA to ensure the matter is fully investigated and we are continuing to monitor the situation.”
