Two fans were injured at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sunday after a railing collapsed during the Week 1 game between the Oakland Raiders and Indianapolis Colts.

The fans were leaning on a barrier above a tunnel leading to Oaklands’s locker room it gave way. One fan was taken out in a wheelchair while the other left on a stretcher reports the Associated Press.

Barney Levengood, executive director of the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium, issued a statement that said one of the people was released after receiving medical attention at the stadium. The other person, Levengood said, was treated at the stadium and transported to Methodist Hospital for additional evaluation.

The reason for the collapse of the railing is under investigation.
