I'm guessing he was drinking. Either way, it is sad to see things like this.
I suppose they will panic and pt all sorts of dumb measures in place to prevent this from happening, even though this is a one in a billion thing.

I'm afraid it's anything but rare. Happens on a regular basis at football, baseball, soccer games. There was another one last night.
Atlanta (CNN) -- A Tennessee fan died Friday night after falling about 45 feet during a college football game at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, authorities said.

A fan died at the 2007 Vikings vs Niners game I was at. The guy was drunk and fell off the one of the upper deck stair case areas.

I have seen some really wasted people at games ... some people just can't control their drinking at all

Also - That Josh Hamilton bit from last year w/ a fan. Tosses a foul ball to a fan above bullpen and guy falls to his death in front of his kid. God damn that's sad.
