Turner Field


A man died on Monday night, after falling from the upper deck at Turner Field, prior to a game between the Atlanta Braves and the Philadelphia Phillies in Atlanta, Georgia.

The victim, whose name has not been released, reportedly fell about 65 feet, from an upper-level platform.

Authorities say the fall took place just prior to 9 pm (edt), nearly two hours after the start of the game was delayed due to rain.

Officially the game was delayed one hour, 48 minutes.
