At a New England Patriots game, a witness claimed the man was hit before he passed away

A witness said Tuesday that a man who passed away last weekend at a home New England Patriots game was struck at least twice in the head during a brawl with an opposing fan.

Dale Mooney, 53, of Newmarket, New Hampshire, was discovered “in apparent need of medical attention” when police and safety workers arrived at Gillette Stadium’s top deck just before 11 p.m. on Sunday, according to a statement from the Norfolk County district attorney’s office on Monday.

After being transported to a hospital, Mooney was declared deceased. What the district attorney referred to as a “incident” at the stadium is being looked into by the Massachusetts State Police.

Witness A nasty fight, according to Joey Kilmartin, was captured on camera.

Kilmartin stated in conversations with a number of regional media sources that he witnessed Mooney, a Patriots supporter, confront a Miami Dolphins supporter with whom he had been disputing for the majority of the game, which the Dolphins won.

As Kilmatin told The Boston Globe, “He basically got into a fight with another fan.” Many individuals began attempting to separate them. When it appeared that someone was between them, a man wearing a Dolphins jersey leaned out and delivered two blows to the victim’s head.

“Until the guy wasn’t getting up 30 seconds later, it wasn’t anything crazy or out of the ordinary.”

A representative for the district attorney’s office said the autopsy’s findings were anticipated this week.

Lisa Mooney, Mooney’s wife, said she is in shock and is seeking information regarding her husband’s passing.

She told WCVB-TV, “I just can’t believe this is actually happening.” “I’m curious as to what took place. What led to this?

Mooney was characterised as a lifetime Patriots supporter and 30-year season ticket holder by Gillette Stadium management, who said they were “heartbroken” by his passing.

According to the statement, “We continue to collaborate with regional law enforcement to support them in their ongoing investigation.” To Dale’s family and everyone else grieving his loss, we offer our deepest sympathy and sorrow.

Sporting event fan violence is a persistent issue, particularly when it involves opposing fan bases. One of the most prominent incidents involved Bryan Stow, a paramedic and San Francisco Giants supporter, who was attacked in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium in 2011.

Stow was assaulted by two Los Angeles Dodgers supporters and knocked on the ground with severe head injuries. When a jury concluded that the team was irresponsible, he was given an amount of nearly $14 million. Prison terms were given to the assailants.
