A New England Patriots season ticket holder has been ‘beaten to death’ by a Miami Dolphins supporter at the Gillette Stadium, according to a witness.
Father-of-two Dale Mooney, 53, of Newmarket, New Hampshire, died following an incident in the 300-tier segment of the arena just before 11pm on Sunday.
A photograph from the Foxborough, Massachusetts stadium show first responders scrambling to revive someone who is out of shot on the ground as worried fans watch on.
Videos also show security trying to break up a scuffle, and medics administering CPR a short time afterwards.
One witness from the scene, Joseph Kilmartin, described the alleged attack by a Miami Dolphins fan as ‘hard to watch’.
‘They started tussling around for a few minutes,’ Kilmartin told WCVB.
‘At one point another Dolphins fan walked over. He punched him three times, and the man just went out. It was pretty hard to watch.’
Several other anonymous witnesses gave similar descriptions of the ‘brutal’ attack which caused Mooney to ‘crumble’, while speaking with Boston 10 at the scene.
