Fan dies after fall in Wrigley Field following Cubs-Reds game
The fall happened roughly 40 minutes after the game on Tuesday, the Cubs said
The man was Richard Garrity, a 42-year-old marketing manager, who had attended the Reds-Cubs game Tuesday with some co-workers and his wife, per reports. Via the Tribune report, details are hazy at this point regarding what exactly happened:
Relatives didn't have many details about the circumstances of Garrity's death. His wife wasn't with him and had tried to call him after the game, his father said. She learned he had been taken to the hospital.
The Cubs have said that Garrity fell over a railing and hit his head at around 11 p.m. The game had ended 40 minutes before that. Garrity was taken in an ambulance to the hospital and then pronounced dead at 3:33 p.m. Wednesday.
"The thoughts and prayers of our entire organization are with his family during this difficult time," the Cubs said in a statement.
Reports indicate an autopsy is to take place Thursday.
