Football fan Dalton Keane dies after falling from an escalator during a Steelers-Jets game

The football fan who fell to his death during Sunday’s game between the Steelers and Jets has been identified.

Dalton Keane, 27, fell from an escalator at 4:45 p.m. at Acrisure Stadium in Pittsburgh, police said. The fatal incident happened shortly after New York defeated the home team 24-20.

Keane’s identity was confirmed to the Post by the Allegheny County Coroner’s Office Monday morning.

The victim lived in Monaca, Pennsylvania — a small neighborhood in Beaver County 25 miles northwest of Pittsburgh, officials said.

Paramedics had provided assistance at the scene and then rushed Keane to a nearby hospital in critical condition, police said.

He was pronounced dead at the hospital at 5:10 p.m., 25 minutes after he fell, according to the coroner.

A close relative of Keane’s said he did not know what caused the fall and was on his way to the morgue when he was contacted by phone by the Post Office.

“We are aware of an unfortunate incident that occurred at Acrisure Stadium today,” Steelers spokesman Burt Lauten said in a statement.

“We are working with local authorities and are helping them investigate the matter. We send our thoughts and prayers to the guest’s family.”

The incident is currently under investigation and was the latest tragedy involving escalators in NFL stadiums and football fans.

In July, a man fell off an escalator at the Eagles’ Lincoln Financial Field during The Weekend concert.

Later that month, a woman fell to her death from an escalator at Empower Field at Mile High Stadium in Denver after a Kenny Chesney concert.

Nine people were hospitalized last year when an escalator failed after a Patriots game at Gillette Stadium at a Massachusetts train station. The escalator appeared to reverse and tumble a group of people backwards, video showed.

In 2007, eight people were injured at Giants Stadium, including one person who lost part of his leg when the bottom steps of a crowded escalator suddenly fell inward.
