Man Falls from Second Deck Trying to Catch a Foul Ball

Stretching for a foul ball a Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Texas, a man fell from the second deck into the field level seats.

The man fell during the fifth inning of a game between the Cleveland Indians and Texas Rangers last summer. The incident occurred when Texas right fielder Nelson Cruz fouled a ball into the first row of seats along the first-base line. He simply leaned too far off the club level seat and toppled onto the seats below, reports say.

The game was stopped for less than a half-hour as emergency crews were called and attended to the man before he was taken by ambulance to a Fort Worth hospital. Four people in the lower deck were also treated when they were struck by the spectator when he fell. They were treated at the ballpark for minor injuries. In addition, several players on the field looked shaken, reports say.
