How to Stay Safe in a Stadium
Football season is here, and that means a lot of of people spending times in stadiums or arenas. Stadiums can be the stage for some great moments in sports, music, and other events. But, sometimes they can also be a place of tragedy. Patrons who enter the gates of these stadiums intend to have a fun experience with friends and family, but if stadium owners or operators act negligently, these stadium visits can actually be the stage for a serious injury and in some cases even death.
For example, on opening day of Football season, falls left one person dead and two injured in San Francisco and Indiana. Accidents due to faulty bleacher type seating is also a common problem.
