Man falls from Turner Field stands, hospitalized
ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta fire officials say a man has been hospitalized after falling from the stands at Turner Field during a Major League Baseball game.
Fire Rescue Department spokeswoman Janet Ward said the unidentified man fell 30 to 40 feet on Monday night and was listed in serious condition at a local hospital.
Details on exactly how the man fell and what part of the stadium the incident occurred in weren't immediately available.
The Atlanta Braves' game against the Philadelphia Phillies was delayed by about an hour and 45 minutes past its scheduled 7:10 p.m. start time because of heavy rains.
A Braves spokesman referred calls to the Atlanta police. A police spokesman did not immediately return a message.
