According to a report from KPIX-TV in California, a Golden State Warriors fan who got into a fight at Oracle Arena during Game 7 of the NBA Finals Sunday was in critical condition, days after falling from the upper deck in the arena. 

The station reported that Salvador Bimbo of Southern California suffered the injuries after falling from section 220 of the arena after engaging in a fight with a Cleveland Cavilers fan. The fight happened toward the end of Sunday's game, which the Cavs won 93-89.

The victim's father Ronnie Bimbo told KPIX that his son fell 50 feet after being thrown to the lower deck by a Cavs fan. 

Salvador Bimbo suffered from a fractured skull and three broken ribs. 

“If somebody out three has a video of what happened, they can call Oakland PD,” said Salvador's father Ronnie told KPIX. “And let’s put a stop to this. At a 49er game, a Warriors game, at a stadium; there should be more concern for people safety.”

Salvador Bimbo, a father of two, took his younger brother with him to the game. 

Oakland Police said it is reviewing video of the fight in hopes of identifying a suspect.
