Teams visiting Heinz Field may have more to worry about than terrible towels.

According to reporting from WTAE in Pittsburgh, a Steelers fan dumped the ashes of a deceased family member in the south end zone of the field.

A Steelers spokesperson wanted to make it known that the fan in question did not have permission to do so, nor do the Steelers ever accommodate similar requests.

“Heinz Field Management does not permit or condone such actions,” a statement from the team read. “While we respect those fans who may be interested in honoring a family member by spreading their family’s ashes inside the stadium, Heinz Field cannot accommodate those requests due to state and local regulations.”

At least one fan complained to the network that the remains blew onto him and into people’s food.

“There is no hazard with them,” Bob Neely, an area funeral director said. “It’s been heated up to a point where there is no disease left, there is nothing there you just have fine particles … but you have a fairly good amount that can come out of an urn.”
