Colorado authorities have identified the woman who plunged to death after Kenny Chesney’s concert in Denver.

Jimi Goodman, 48, died after falling from an escalator at Empower Field at Mile High Stadium in Denver, Colorado just before 11 p.m. on July 30.

Police say Goodman was sitting on the railing before he fell. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Denver Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed to the Post that Goodman’s cause of death was multiple blunt injuries. The manner of his death was considered an accident.

According to CBS News, Francisco Morales fell a level while trying to chase his windblown hat in 2015.

Another fan, Jason Coy, died in October 2016 when he slurred multiple stories during a Denver Broncos game. Coy’s family sued the stadium and the beer vendors before the case was settled.
