  • Man dies after fall from Turner Field upper deck
    ATLANTA — A man who fell more than 60 feet from an upper-level platform at Atlanta's Turner Field onto a parking lot during a baseball game died Monday night, police said.
    Atlanta police spokesman John Chafee confirmed the death of the man, whose name has not been released. The man fell during Monday night's game between the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies.
    "At this time there's no indication of foul play and the fall appears accidental," Chafee said late Monday. "It appears he fell from an upper-level platform to a secured lot below."
    He said he did not know if wet conditions or alcohol were factors. Heavy rains had led to a nearly two-hour delay of the game, which was scheduled to start at 7:10 p.m.
