Fan Falls From Upper Deck at Rangers Game; Umpire, Players React in Horror Video (Reaction Only)
Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | July 6, 2010 | Brian

Here is video from the Texas Rangers baseball game tonight, where a fan fell out of an upper deck to the lower deck while trying to grab a foul ball. This video does NOT show the fan falling, but shows the reaction of the home plate umpire who looked up as the crowd started to scream and saw the man fall. You then see the reaction of players on the field who fell to the ground and began praying for the fan as a hush fell over the stadium.

Play was suspended for some time as the fan was attended to and taken out of the stadium on a stretcher. Word tonight is that the fan is at a local hospital, where he is “responsive,” able to move his extremities, and has been stabilized.

Hopefully, the fan will have a complete recovery.

Foul balls should be banned.

Its things like that that make me scared of heights. Went to a dodger game last year, thankfully did not sit in the upper deck, but did get a pretty bad sunburn. Hope the guy recovers, that is some scary stuff

I’ve been to the ballpark in Arlington, that’s a long fall.

It sounds like the man who fell is stable. They are continuing to say that on the Rangers broadcast.

Whenever I sit in the front row in the upper deck at a baseball game I am so paranoid about losing my balance when I stand up. I now request anything but front row seats in upper deck.

You know what they say about how beer keeps you limber so you don’t hurt yourself when you fall? Anyhow, hope the guy is OK...

I know I’m a bad person, but I keep hearing Bob Uecker saying “I must be in the front row!”

Presuming he doesn't end up suing, that's good news.

I remember watching that game on TV when that happened! I’m showing my age. That is amazing. Thanks for sharing.
