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

Colorado authorities have identified the woman who fell to her death after Kenny Chesney’s Denver concert.

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

Police say Goodman was sitting on the railing before falling. She was pronounced dead on the spot.

The Denver Office of the Medical Examiner confirmed to The Post that Goodman’s cause of death was due to multiple blunt force injuries. The manner of her death was ruled accidental.

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

“I was devastated to learn of the loss of someone after our show,” the “American Kids” hitmaker told the Denver Post in a statement. “There was so much joy, so much heart from the people of Denver last night — and it’s heartbreaking to hear.”

“Life is precious. Sharing music brings us together and this love we share makes us so much more. There are no words for the lady who came to share this love. For the loss of hers I mourn friends and family with them and for them.”

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

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

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

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

According to CBS News, Francisco Morales fell a notch while trying to chase his hat, which was blown away by the wind in 2015.

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