There was an accident earlier tonight at Turner Field with a spectator falling from the upper level. The spectator has been transported to the hospital. The Atlanta Police Department are investigating and we refer all media inquiries to them at this time.
The start of the Phillies and Braves game was delayed due to rain.
A similar situation occurred in 2008 when a 25-year-old man died after suffering fatal head injuries when he fell 150 feet during a Braves' game against the Mets.
