Fan who fell at Bills game fired by employer

So a guy was trying to slide down the railing on the second level with his hands in his pockets at Ralph Wilson Stadium last Sunday, and shockingly fell off and into the level below.

Lucky he wasn't killed, the man, Rob Hopkins, broke his fall by landing on another fan, both of whom then went to the hospital, were treated for their injuries, and left. 

The Bills are not welcoming Hopkins back. His employer, a Buffalo-area #brand agency called Eric Mower and Associates, also is not welcoming him back:

"EMA is very concerned about Sunday’s incident at the Buffalo Bills' game and we are relieved that the injured were released from the hospital. Rob Hopkins is no longer employed by EMA."
