ORCHARD PARK, N.Y., Nov. 18 (UPI) -- Two football fans were injured after one fell "like a sack of wet cement" from a railing at the Buffalo Bills' stadium in Orchard Park, N.Y., officials said.

A video of the incident Sunday appears to show one man attempting to slide down a railing on the 300 level of Ralph Wilson Stadium, losing his balance and falling backward onto the level below, landing on another man, WIVB-TV, Buffalo, reported.

"This guy falling ... was like a sack of wet cement falling next to me and this guy he jumped right up and said 'Well I'm OK,' but the guy he landed on, they took him away on a stretcher because I think the guy he landed on was more hurt than he was," witness Tony Martino said.

A team statement said: "Bills staff responded to the incident immediately and were soon joined by emergency personnel. Both individuals were then taken to South Side EMS inside the stadium and both were later transported to a local hospital for further observation."
