HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – A 25-year old man attending the Texans preseason finale against the Minnesota Vikings fell to his death while horse-playing on an escalator at the Coca-Cola Gate near the northeast side of Reliant Stadium.

He was allegedly trying to slide down the outside of the handrail on the escalator when he fell three stories, landing on the pavement, police said.

He was rushed to Memorial Hermann Southwest.

The man, whose identity is still unknown to CBS Houston at this time, was said to be dead on arrival. Sources say the man had been under the influence of alcohol.

Houston Police are investigating what they say to be an “accidental death.”

Texans president Jamey Rootes declined to comment.
