atlanta braves fan falls to death at turner field

A baseball fan in Atlanta died last night after falling nearly six stories at Turner Field as the Braves took on the Philadelphia Phillies.

The fan was identified as 29-year-old Ronald Homer, who stumbled over the railing in the upper deck area and fell more than 60 feet.

Police arrived on the scene and transported him to Atlanta Medical Center where he later died of his injuries.

There was heavy rain, which delayed the last night's game, however it's not immediately clear whether the wet conditions or alcohol played a part in the tragic accident. An autopsy is expected to take place later today.

Hopefully Turner Field and other ballparks around the U.S. will learn from this horrible event and take preventative measures to keep fans safe in the future.

    Re: pollopicu – Wow. You have no idea who this man is. I went to High School with him. He was known as the ”gentle giant”– the 6'6” guy who gave the best hugs and could make anyone laugh. He was a great person. Not a ”piece of trash redneck.” He would have never made such rude comments on something so devastating as this. His family and friends are so heartbroken.

    Pollopicu, you are a heartless bitty. He was an amazing guy. What makes him redneck trash? Maybe you will fall to your death and we will have one less ignorant person in this world. Show some compassion

    I agree this is sad and my prayers go out to his family. However, before we start blaming the ballpark or the team, maybe we should wait and see what the cause was.
