    Fan falls from 2nd deck at Rangers game

    Cleveland Indians-Texas Rangers game stopped after fan falls onto lower deck - ESPN Dallas

    Fan reaching for a foul ball fell from the second deck. Game stopped for 16 minutes. Apparently the fan was talking and could move extremities.

    They just showed video (not of the fall) on Sportscenter that showed players and the umpires reactions as it happen. Very erie.

    I just saw this too. It looked like the fall bothered many players and the home plate umpire. I couldn't imagine seeing something like that and to be on the field not knowing how the person was doing.

    I don't like to sit in the front row of an upper deck because falling like that is one of my biggest fears. The reactions of the players and umpires are really scary.

    Sounds like it could have been worse then it turned out to be. Thank God.
