The Bears released a statement Monday in reaction to the passing of 23-year-old Stuart Haverty, who died Sunday after falling from a ledge at Soldier Field during the Bears-Eagles game.

"The Chicago Bears are deeply saddened to hear of the tragic accident that claimed the life of Stuart Haverty yesterday," the statement read. "Our hearts go out to his family and friends. They will be in our prayers during this difficult time."

The Cook County medical examiner's office ruled his death an accident and an autopsy showed Haverty died from multiple injuries, according to reports. Haverty fell about 35 feet from the colonnade on the west side of the stadium around 4:55 p.m. CT Sunday.
