Alabama Man Dies at Turner Stadium
(2008-05-22)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Authorities have identified the 25-year-old man who died after falling about 150 feet down a stairwell at Turner Field.

The senior investigator with the Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office, Mark Guilbeau, said Thursday that the man who fell was Justin Hayes of Cumming.

Guilbeau says an autopsy will be done to determine the cause of death.

Authorities say the man fell during the eighth inning of Wednesday night's game between the Atlanta Braves and the New York Mets.

Atlanta Police Department spokesman Ronald Campbell said the man was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.

Braves spokesman Brad Hainje said the man apparently fell from the club level to the landing on the stairwell on the field level.

Campbell says the man may have been sliding down the hand rails when he fell.
