According to several reports from those in attendance, a man passed away during WWE's Portland, Maine live event.
A man appeared to have a heart attack, and fell out of his seat, crashing to the floor just ahead of the evening's second match. Paramedics attempted to perform CPR for about 20 minutes, before carrying him away on a stretcher.
The mood was said to be somber following the unfortunate incident, as one could imagine.
A fan sitting next to the man stated that he was sent to Maine Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. Fightful was able to confirm the claims.
The fan also noted that the man was caring for a disabled man at the event.
