Don't they have any sort of railings over the cement forms?
that is really messed up
and these is a brand new stadium
That's horrible news. I saw the ambulance rushing towards the stands during the game, but I didn't know what happened. May that person Rest in Peace.
Not the first time this has happened, about 2-3 people died at the San Siro last season.
Very sad it is though.
During the game (although I was too busy bitching at SLB) I noticed people behind the net going frantic and you could see the ambulance. The commentators also mentioned that a fan had fallen from the segundo anel. This is very sad indeed.
Leirisports, responsible for the stadium, saying they not responsible
NORMAS DE SEGURANÇA SÃO RESPEITADAS
Leirisport nega responsabilidade na morte do adepto
O presidente da Leirisport, Paulo Rabaça, lamentou hoje a morte de um adepto no Estádio Municipal de Leiria durante o U. Leiria-Benfica, mas rejeitou responsabilidades.
A Leirisport, que gere o Estádio Municipal de Leiria, garante que todas as normas de segurança estão a ser respeitadas na infra-estrutura, sublinhando que "o estádio está licenciado pelo Instituto do Desporto de Portugal e Liga de Futebol, cumpre os parâmetros de segurança e o decreto regulamentar dos estádios".
De acordo com o responsável, a altura mínima exigida para as guardas naquela zona do estádio é de 90 centímetros e "em Leiria a estrutura tem 95 centímetros".

Not that it matters because this is such a horrible thing, but Yahoo news reported it this way:
Benfica fan falls to death at Leiria stadium
LISBON, Nov 28 (Reuters) - A Benfica fan has died after falling from the second tier of Leiria stadium during the Portuguese Premier League match between Uniao Leiria and Benfica on Sunday, hospital officials said.
Stadium officials said the 45-year-old fan fell after his team failed to score a good chance.
The fan, who lived in Lisbon, died shortly after arriving at the Leiria hospital. Benfica suffered their second defeat of the season when they lost 1-0 to share second place with champions Porto who play at Vitoria Setubal on Monday. Boavista lead the standings with 23 points. Leiria stadium hosted two group games at Euro 2004 earlier this year.
sad but it happens. fans get to excited on the balcony and tragedy strikes. they need to implement some barriers so this wont happen again.
I think he was warned during the match to calm down, to not run like mad to the security barriers, i don´t know how is possible someone fall from that place, if he had the minimum atention something like this wouldn´t happen
I have been to the Leiria stadium and the stadium is very good, so nothing to blame, the people are the one´s who need to learn how to behave in a stadium.
