James Minish, executive vice-president of facilities for the New Jersey Sports & Exposition Authority, which operates the stadium, said one of the injured fans appeared to have a fractured leg, while others had scrapes and bruises.
Two fans apparently suffered more serious leg injuries, Minish
said, but he
did not have further details.
The injured were taken to Hackensack University Medical Center
, where they were still being treated Sunday.A hospital spokeswoman declined to provide details about their conditions.
"The elevator apparently started running fast" Minish said, adding that all of the stadium's escalators were turned off after the incident.
Only the upper-tier escalators at Gate A would not be in operation for Sunday's game there between the New York Jets and the Kansas City Chiefs, Minish
