During a rain delay prior to the Braves and Cubs game, a fan allegedly fell from the outfield bleachers, and landed on the outfield warning track. The fan appeared to be seriously injured as those that were present said he was motionless for quite a while before assistance came to tend to the injured fan.

Bystanders also said the man was highly intoxicated while messing around on the top of the wall and basket you see there. He was told many times to get off the wall, but proceeded until he fell on the field. Bystanders also saying the fan was unconscious for most of this event. It took multiple medical professionals to get him rolled over before they put a neck brace on him and carted him away. Hope he’s alright.
I'm sitting 5 seats over, guy was extremely drunk, climbed on wall and tried to jump, but hit the basket. Was unconscious
