Reports: Man falls to his death at Candlestick Park during 49ers-Packers game


According to multiple published reports, San Francisco police say a man fell to his death at Candlestick Park on Sunday.

Police told the Associated Press that the man fell from an elevated walkway near the 49ers’ stadium to the ground below. The man has yet to be publicly identified, according to the AP and the San Francisco Chronicle.

San Francisco police spokesman Gordon Shyy (SHY) says multiple people witnessed the man's fall onto a sidewalk from the Jamestown walkway, which goes around Candlestick.

According to police, witnesses say the man appeared intoxicated when he fell just after kickoff at about 1:30 p.m. Sunday in the 49ers' 34-28 win over the Packers. Off-duty medics and police officers gave him first aid until an ambulance arrived, but the man was declared dead from his injuries.
Shyy says the man who appeared to be in his 30s suffered serious injuries. It was not immediately clear how many feet he had fallen.

According to the reports, the incident occurred around 1:30 p.m. Pacific time.
