CHARLOTTE, NC --  A Florida man remains hospitalized at Carolinas Medical Center after he fell from the fourth level ramp at Bank of America Stadium Saturday during the ACC football championship game.

According to 22-year-old Sean Powers' mother, he has a fractured skull, broken arm and injured kidney. 

According to police documents, alcohol was a factor in the accident.  Investigators say Powers jumped up onto a waist-high safety wall along the ramp, and momentum carried him over the other side where he plummeted 40-50 feet.

On Monday afternoon, stadium officials issued a statement.

“There are no immediate changes planned for the stadium or its operations at this time.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Sean Michael Powers and his family.”
