An unidentified man has died after falling from a platform in the upper deck of Atlanta’s Turner Field during Monday night’s game with the Phillies.
According to Atlanta Police, the man fell about 65 feet from a platform to a private parking lot shortly after 8:30 p.m. The death is believed to be the second at the stadium.
Back in 2008, a Cumming man died after falling 150 feet from the upper deck to the lower concourse near home plate. Last night’s incident appears to be accidental, and police are not suspecting any foul play was involved.
