Spectator dies in fall
ATLANTA: A man died on Saturday after falling 12m from an upper deck at the Atlanta Braves’ ballpark, the Major League Baseball team said.
The fall occurred in the top of the seventh inning of the New York Yankees’ 3-1 win over the Braves – as Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez was walking to home plate to bat amid boos from Braves fans.
Fans in the lower section behind home plate, where the man landed, scattered and paramedics raced to treat him.
Police are investigating the fall, but did not immediately identify the man.
