JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a man is in critical condition after falling about 42 feet from the third level of a Jacksonville soccer stadium during a match between the United States and Nigeria.

The Florida Times-Union ( ) reported that the 24-year-old man from Jacksonville was taken to an area hospital after security officers responded to the fall around 7 p.m. on Saturday.

A witness told authorities she saw the man running up the steps and it looked like was going to lean on a chair when he fell over.
