A woman fell to her death from an escalator on Thursday night at a St. Louis Blues game in the Scottrade Center in St. Louis.
According to police, the unidentified woman fell from the second level and was taken to a local hospital. Her death was ruled accidental.
The Blues issued a statement Friday afternoon expressing their sympathy.
"The entire St. Louis Blues organization is deeply saddened today. Following last night's home game, a fan riding an escalator in the arena was involved in a fall. Tragically, she died as a result of injuries sustained in the fall," Blues chairman Tom Stillman said. "We are working closely with the St. Louis Police Department to investigate the facts surrounding this tragic event.
"Everyone with the St. Louis Blues -- our ownership, management, coaches, players and staff -- extends our deepest and heartfelt sympathies to the woman's family and friends. We will keep them in our thoughts and prayers, and we ask all Blues fans to do the same."
The Blues offered their sympathies Friday after a female fan died after falling from an escalator following a game Thursday.
