An elderly woman is fighting for life after falling down six rows of seats during a Robbie Williams concert.
The woman, aged in her 70s, remains in an induced coma after the horror accident at the Allianz Stadium in Moore Park in Sydney on Thursday night.
She was rushed to St Vincent’s hospital in a critical condition after she suffered head and face injuries in the fall.
It’s understood the elderly fan attempted to climb over several rows of seats before she slipped and tumbled down them.

A NSW Ambulance spokesman told Daily Mail Australia paramedics were called to the scene at about 10.15pm on Friday night.
‘Last night we attended Allianz stadium. We were called in to reports of a woman in her 70’s who had fallen,’ the spokesman said.
‘We treated her on scene to injuries to her face and head and took her to St Vincent’s Hospital in a critical condition.’
A St Vincent’s Hospital spokesman said the woman remains in intensive care.
NSW Police is aware of the incident and that the woman has been hospitalised.
A Venues NSW spokesman said staff at the stadium tended to the woman before emergency crews arrived.
‘The patron was attended to immediately by venue staff and a nearby guest who is a qualified medical professional,’ they told the Daily Telegraph.
‘Medics arrived shortly after and the patron was taken from the venue by ambulance to hospital.
‘We are working with NSW Police and will provide further updates as they become available.’
Daily Mail has contacted Venues NSW for comment.

In 2003, a 23-year-old man was left seriously injured after attending a Robbie Williams concert in Melbourne after he fell from a railing while dancing.
The fan is believed to have been standing on a railing at the time before he slipped and fell on top of the crowd who were several metres below.
He was treated for head injuries by paramedics before he was rushed to hospital.
Almost 40,000 fans descended on the Allianz Stadium on Thursday night for the opening night of the Robbie Williams XXV Australian Tour.
The pop icon will perform at several Queensland venues before heading to Victoria. His final show is in Swan Valley, Western Australia, on December 1.
The tour marks the singer-songwriters’ first visit to Australia since 2018.
