Tragedy at 49ers game

Postby thedude » Mon Dec 10, 2007 7:33 pm

SAN FRANCISCO -- A fan attending the Minnesota Vikings-San Francisco 49ers game at Monster Park died when he fell at least 20 feet from an upper concourse to the mezzanine level, team and local police said.

The man, 31, went to a concession area near halftime, according to a report in the San Francisco Chronicle. He fell over a wall that is 4 feet high and 6 inches wide with a 4-inch sloping ledge.

"This person tried to jump up on one of the walls to sit, and he misjudged and he fell," said San Francisco police spokesman Sgt. Neville Gittens said, according to the Chronicle.

According to 49ers vice president Lisa Lang, paramedics worked on the man for about 30 minutes. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The man's identity has been withheld, pending notification of his family and an investigation by a medical examiner.

"The police did their investigation, they interviewed witnesses and security, and they are treating it as an accident," Lang said.

That's horrible. I used to have nightmares of that happening to me when I was a kid. I'm kind of surprised this doesn't happen more often considering the amount of drunkenness at sports events and how unsecure the ledges are.

That's sad to hear. So young, doing something completely harmless too :-/

When I looked at the title, I thought it would be a thread whining about how ADP's pedestrian game screwed somebody out of a playoff spot.

Terrible news. Why does anyone want to get closer to the action at a Niners game??

I heard Nolan was motioning for him to come to the sidelines, suit up and take a crack at QB.
