Tragedy struck on Friday night as a 46-year-old man plummeted to his death at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets. The man, whose identity has yet to be released by police fell from a second-story staircase and landed headfirst on the concrete below. Witnesses of the event reported that the deceased was likely under the influence of alcohol at the time of his death.
Police arrived just after 9:00 P.M., but unfortunately nothing could be done to save the man’s life. The fall took place during a concert from the band Dead & Company, which is composed of former members of the Grateful Dead, as well as seven-time Grammy Award winner John Mayer, and others.
“We are aware of a tragic incident which sadly resulted in a fatality last night,” Harold Kaufman, a New York Mets spokesperson, told CNN. “Our deepest and heartfelt condolences go out to the attendee’s loved ones.”
