SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — A man who collapsed during the San Francisco 49ers' debut game at Levi's Stadium has died.
The Santa Clara Fire Department said stadium staff responded to a cardiac emergency during the third quarter of the 49ers' preseason opener against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
The man received CPR and was rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His name was not released.
The 49ers issued a statement Sunday night offering condolences to his family and friends.
The team's 34-0 loss to the Broncos and 80-degree heat drove thousands of fans to leave the new stadium midway through the game.
Team officials told the San Jose Mercury News (http://bit.ly/1v6Cek3) that there was an unusually high number of calls for emergency services, likely because of the heat.
