    The person fell approximately 50 feet.

    Emergency workers are working on him/her as we speak.

    This is from Vic's twitter:

    The gentleman was an engineer for the Chargers. He was wiring something in the box, stumbled over the railing, fell 2 stories. Heartbreaking
    No confirmation on whether he was revived. They were still administering CPR as he was taken to the ambulance.

    Here's a link.

    SAN DIEGO – A member of the Chargers game-day staff fell approximately 20-25 feet from a box at Qualcomm Stadium's press level and was injured about three hours before Monday night's game between the Chargers and Denver Broncos.

    The man, identified as Walt Michaels, was reported by emergency personnel to “have a pulse” after at least five minutes of CPR.

    The injured man was putting together program packages for dispersal to the media when he somehow fell out of Booth 35C, landing on the seats below and settling on the concrete between the second and third rows of the Club Level.

    While a member of the stadium security team performed CPR on his chest, medics apparently revived him and he was taken to Sharp Memorial Hospital.

    A pool of blood was visible at the area where Michaels fell.

    Chargers officials said the stadium gates would be opened 40 minutes later than normal, at 3:40 p.m. Kickoff is scheduled at 5:40.
