Woman identified after Kenny Chesney concert at Empower Field at Mile High Stadium

Colorado authorities have identified a woman who plunged into death after Kenny Chesney’s Denver concert.

Jimi Goodman, 48, died after falling from an escalator at Empower Field at Mile High Stadium in Denver, CO, just before 11pm on July 30.

Police say Goodman sat on the railing before he fell. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Denver Office of the Medical Examiner confirmed The Post that the cause of Goodman’s death was multiple blunt force injuries. The manner of her death was adjudicated by an accident.

Goodman’s death left the country singer “devastated” when he made a statement after the sad news.

“I was devastated to find out about the loss of someone after our show,” the American Kids hit-maker told the Denver Post in a statement. “There was so much joy last night, so much heart from the people of Denver – and it’s painful to hear.”

‚ÄúLife is precious. Sharing music brings us closer together and the love we share makes us so much more. For the lady who came to share this love, there are no words. For the loss of her friends and family, I mourn her with them and for them. “

Empower Field at Mile High, where Chesney performed his “Here and Now” tour, issued a statement on Twitter after the tragedy.

“We express our deepest sympathy to the relatives of the woman involved in the tragic incident that took place at the end of Saturday’s concert at the Empower Field in Mile High,” the statement reads.

“Nothing is more important than the safety of our visitors, and Stadium Management Company is in contact with the Denver Police Department as it investigates this unfortunate situation.”

Goodman’s death marks the third fatal stadium crash since 2015.

Francisco Morales dropped one notch as he tried to chase a hat that was blown away by the wind in 2015, according to CBS News.

Another fan, Jason Coy, passed away in October 2016 after plunging into several stories during a Denver Broncos match. The Coy family sued the stadium and the beer sellers before the case was settled.
