Buffalo Bills fan fired from job after stadium plunge

Buffalo Bills fan Rob Hopkins' week went from bad to worse on Tuesday, after he discovered he had been fired from his job.

Hopkins was seen sliding down the edge of the upper tier at the Ralph Wilson Stadium during the Bills' 37-14 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday, before plummeting down to the tier below.

Remarkably, Hopkins only suffered a shoulder injury after the terrifying fall. However, the man he landed on sustained a head injury, while on Tuesday Hopkins lost his job at Eric Mower and Associates.

"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," the company said in a statement. "Rob Hopkins is no longer employed by EMA."

It's also been reported that Hopkins, who was banned from ever returning to the stadium on Monday, could face criminal charges.

All in all, it's been a rather costly price to pay for an innocent act of tomfoolery.
