11Alive (ATLANTA) — Police have confirmed that a man who fell from the upper deck at Turner Field during a game between the Atlanta Braves and New York Yankees has died.
The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office has identified the victim as 60-year-old Gregory Murrey of Alpharetta.
Fans watching from home first found out about the incident from the Fox Sports broadcaster who described, in shock, what had just happened in front of him.
“Someone just fell over the upper-deck right below us; oh my gosh,” the announcer said. “As Alex Rodriguez was being introduced, a fan fell from the upper deck.”
He said the incident happened in front of a radio booth at the ball field.
