OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - A man who tried to catch a woman who jumped from the third level of the Oakland Raiders' stadium has been released from the hospital.

Alameda County sheriff's Sgt. J.D. Nelson says the injured man was released from the hospital Monday, a day after he broke the woman's fall after she plunged about 45 feet at the Coliseum.

Nelson says the 61-year-old man is recuperating at his home in Stockton.

Nelson says the woman remains hospitalized in critical condition. She jumped shortly after the Raiders' 23-19 loss to the Tennessee Titans as fans filed out of the stadium Sunday afternoon.

The names of the man and the woman have not been released.
