Woman who fell to her death after Kenny Chesney concert at Empower Field at Mile High Stadium identified

Authorities in Colorado have identified the woman who crashed to her death after a Kenny Chesney concert in Denver.

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

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

The Denver Office of the Medical Examiner confirmed to The Post that Goodman’s cause of death was from multiple blunt force injuries. The way her death was ruled an accident.

Goodman’s death left the country singer “devastated” as he released a statement following the sad news.

“I was devastated to hear of the loss of someone after our show,” the “American Kids” hitmaker told the Denver Post in a statement. “There had been so much joy, so much heart from the people of Denver last night – and to hear this is heartbreaking.”

“Life is precious. Sharing music brings us together and the love we share makes us so much more. For the lady who came to share that love, there are no words. For the loss of her friends and family, I with them and above them.”

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

“We extend our deepest condolences to the loved ones of the woman involved in the tragic incident that occurred at the end of Saturday’s concert at Empower Field in Mile High,” the statement read.

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

Goodman’s death is the third fatal fall at the stadium since 2015.

According to CBS News, Francisco Morales fell a level while trying to retrieve his hat that was blown away by the wind in 2015.

Another fan, Jason Coy, died in October 2016 when he threw multiple stories during a Denver Broncos game. Coy’s family sued the stadium and beer vendors before the case was settled.
