Worker Falls Out Of Qualcomm Stadium Press Box

press box

Walt Daniels, a member of the San Diego Chargers game-day staff, ended up in the hospital due to sustaining a head injury after falling approximately 25-30 feet when he took a tumble out of the press box used by the Denver Broncos coaching staff. The incident occurred about three hours prior to the kickoff of the Chargers-Broncos game last night and delayed the opening of the gates by 40 minutes. Workers were later seen cleaning up a pool of blood where Daniels met pavement.

Best wishes go out to Daniels and his family. By all accounts, it appears to have been a total accident, although I suspect foul play may have been involved. You have to remember that Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels once worked with Bill Belichick. If McDaniels suspected for any reason that Daniels was involved in some conspiracy on behalf of the Chargers organization to perform some sort of espionage, there is no telling what depths of depravity McDaniels would have been willing to sink to send a message.
