A man fell 65 feet from the upper deck to the parking lot below during a Braves baseball game at Turner Field in Atlanta late Monday evening. He died at the hospital shortly after from his injuries.

“It appears that the male fell from an upper-level platform to a secured lot below,” said Atlanta Police spokesman John Chafee, The Associated Press reported.

The man’s identity was not reported.

He was taken to Atlanta Medical Center in critical condition and later died from his injuries.

“At this time, there is no indication of foul play and the fall appears accidental,” Mr. Chafee said in the AP report.

The game, between the Braves and the Philadelphia Phillies, had been delayed by rain for almost two hours, and the incident took place at 8:55 p.m.
