During tonight’s game featuring the Atlanta Braves hosting the New York Yankees at Turner Field, it’s being reported that a fan fell from the upper deck behind the plate. Details are hard to find, but we’ve heard that the fan was taken away on a stretcher. The man was 60 years old and fell around 40 feet. He was said to have hit some wire / railing on his way down.
Warning: don’t scroll down if you’re afraid of blood

UPDATE: The fan was pronounced dead shortly after arriving in the hospital. Prayers go out to the victim and their family as well as all of the Atlanta Braves organization. We lost a member of the baseball fam today.
