Family Searching for Answers in Death at Acrisure Stadium
The family of Dalton Keane, the Beaver County man who fell to his death at Acrisure Stadium on Sunday is still searching for answers as to how the tragedy unfolded.
Keane was killed after falling 40 feet from an escalator on the northwest side of the stadium near Gate C on Sunday. Paramedics were called to the scene around 4:45 p.m. Keane was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
The details surrounding how and why Keane fell remain unclear. Pittsburgh Police and the Pittsburgh Steelers are conducting investigations. Both organizations said that would not make further statements until those inquiries are complete. The Allegheny County medical examiner’s office has not yet released a cause and manner of death.
Keane’s family told our news partner WPXI on Monday they hope eyewitnesses come forward to aid those investigations and help provide the family answers. Keane left behind a two-year-old daughter.
The 27-year-old Keane was attending the game with fellow members of Steamfitters Local 449 on Sunday before the tragedy.
“The thing I remember most about Dalton: he was always in a good mood, he was always a happy kid and he enjoyed what he did and going to work,” fellow union member Jimmy Harding told WPXI.
Keane worked as a pipefitter for McCarl’s, an industrial service provider in Beaver Falls.
“We are shocked and saddened to hear about Dalton’s accident on Sunday. He joined McCarl’s in 2014 and was highly regarded by our employees. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family,” CEO Ken Burk said.
Funeral arrangements for Keane have not yet been announced.
