A freak accident at Madison Square Garden killed the son of a famous restaurant owner in New York City.

Ernest Vogliano Jr., 61, was riding an escalator railing inside the arena after a New York Rangers game on Saturday when he suddenly fell nearly three floors to his death.

At around 10.40 p.m. on Saturday, emergency personnel responded to a 911 call about an injured person at the Garden.

According to the New York City Police Department, Vogliano was rushed to Bellevue Hospital and pronounced dead.

The circumstances surrounding Vogliano’s death are unknown.

However, according to his family and sources, an autopsy performed by the city medical examiner determined the 61-year-old died of blunt force trauma and ruled his death an accident.

Vogliano’s widow, Lesa, has hired an attorney to investigate the accident, saying she’s being kept in the dark about the incident.

“We have no idea what happened, but they do,” family attorney Fred Eisenberg told the Post.

“We have to review the evidence. We know that he was there and we know that he died. We’d like to find out how.”

Eisenberg has demanded that MSG officials turn over all evidence related to Vogliano’s death, including surveillance footage.

Ernest Vogliano Sr., Vogliano’s late father, owned the renowned Upper East Side Italian restaurant Il Vagabondo.

Before closing its doors in 2019, the popular red-sauce eatery hosted famous patrons such as actors Cindy Crawford and Tom Hanks.

The restaurant was once regarded as one of the best old-fashioned Italian joints in town, famous for its chicken Parmesan and bocce court.

Vogliano’s mother, siblings Robert, Jennifer, and Marie, children Blaze and Summer, and his wife, Lesa, survive him.
