Glass pane breaks at USBS during Vikings-Packers game

- A glass plane broke at U.S. Bank Stadium during the Minnesota Vikings' home opener game against the Green Bay Packers.

Vikings fan Greg Greene was watching the game with his family in section 349, which is in the southwest corner of the endzone by the glass doors. 

He says a Packers fan had been sitting in the front row of the section. 

When Aaron Rodgers threw the game-sealing interception, Greene starting celebrated with his family, but they soon noticed the glass had shattered. Greene says that's when he got security to make sure the pane didn't break further.

U.S. Bank Stadium officials released the following statement regarding the incident: 

"A guard rail at U.S. Bank Stadium was cracked at Sunday's inaugural Vikings game. The rail has a special coating so the glass remains intact, and no one was injured. When we have 66,000 visitors in the stadium, things will break and will need to be repaired."
