Fan dies of heart attack during 49ers’ Levi’s Stadium debut

There was news coming out of yesterday’s 49ers debut in Levi’s Stadium even worse than the score.

According to the Associated Press, a fan died after suffering a heart attack during the third quarter.

The Santa Clara Fire Department said the unnamed man received CPR and was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Two construction workers also died there during the construction of the massive new stadium last year.

Antoine Bethea goes down with a concussion

The 49ers didn’t play several of their projected defensive regulars in Sunday’s game against the Broncos and they saw one of the ones that did start leave early with a concussion.

Safety Antoine Bethea went down after being blocked by Broncos rookie wide receiver Cody Latimer on a play in the second quarter and going down to the turf hard. He was able to walk off the field under his own power and the 49ers later announced he was done for the day. He’ll be evaluated under the league’s concussion protocol and won’t return to full practices or games until he passes the necessary tests.
