EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- New York Giants tight end Martellus Bennett broke the fall of a man who fell over a railing trying to grab a glove the player was handing to a child after Sunday night's win over the Green Bay Packers.
The fan was quickly surrounded by New Jersey state troopers and led away. He did not appear to be hurt in the fall from the lowest level of seating at MetLife Stadium, a distance of about 10 feet or less.
Bennett, who signed as a free agent after four seasons in Dallas, said the child ducked as the man reached over him, causing the man to fall over the railing.
This isn't the first time Bennett has helped someone at a game. He said he rescued a ball boy at a Texas A&M game who was knocked down when the crowd rushed the court.
