Man dies in fall at 49ers-Packers game

A fan died from injuries sustained in a fall at Candlestick Park in San Francisco on Sunday afternoon during the 49ers-Green Bay Packers game, according to multiple reports.

San Francisco police said witnesses saw a man who appeared to be intoxicated land on a sidewalk from a walkway that encircles the stadium at about 1:30 p.m. PT.

The man suffered serious injuries in the fall from an undetermined height and was given first aid by off-duty medical personnel and police officers but was declared dead.

The identity of the man, described by witnesses as in his 30s, was withheld pending notification of his family.

The death was the second at a ballpark in the past month. In August, Ronald Lee Horner Jr., 30, fell from an upper-level platform at Turner Field in Atlanta into a parking lot during a Braves-Philadelphia Phillies game.
