A New England Patriots fan died after what witnesses said was an altercation in the stands at Gillette Stadium on Sunday night.
Dale Mooney was 53 and a season-ticket holder for the club for 30 years. He was also a hero to a little girl 14 years ago.
On July 11, 2009, Mooney was at Hampton Beach, New Hampshire, when he noticed a girl caught between rocks trying to retrieve her boogie board in the middle of 30 mph winds and rough waters.
Gillette Stadium said they “continue to work with local authorities to assist them with their ongoing investigation” and “extend our sincerest sympathies and heartfelt condolences to Dale’s family and to all those who are mourning his loss.”
