Four people were taken to the hospital after a person fell from the balcony at Arizona State University's Grady Gammage Auditorium Sunday afternoon.

A Tempe Fire Department spokesperson initially said two people were seriously injured and a third suffered minor injuries when the person fell onto the crowd.

According to a statement from the ASU Police Department, four patrons were hospitalized, all with non-life-threatening injuries.

ASU Police said the man stepped over a wall and fell from a second-floor balcony during a performance of Beautiful - The Carol King Musical. The man's wife reportedly told police he was headed to the restroom when he mistakenly assumed there was a walkway on the other side of the wall and fell onto the crowd below.
