Fan Dies From Fall at Turner Field

August 13, 2013

A man died after falling about 65 feet from an upper level onto a parking lot at Turner Field in Atlanta, authorities said. The incident occurred at 8:55 p.m. ET during a game between the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies, according to Atlanta Police spokesman John Chafee. “It appears that the male fell from an upper-level platform to a secured lot below,” Chafee said. The man was transported to Atlanta Medical Center where he later died from his injuries. “At this time, there is no indication of foul play and the fall appears accidental,” Chafee added. Rain had delayed the game by about two hours.
