Man Falls From Balcony at Elton John Concert

(Springfield, MO) -- One of the most high profile shows in Springfield turned dangerous over the weekend.

According to Missouri State University, one man was injured just before Elton John wrapped up his set at JQH Arena Saturday night.

They say he fell from the upper rim in the arena to a concrete landing area below.

Emergency crews took the man to the hospital.

While we don't have specifics on his injuries, MSU says the victim was conscious when he went to the hospital.

The university does not believe anything illegal led to his fall.

Was the man's name ever released? I heard who it might have been, a man I went through school with.
