(Newser) – A man plunged 20 feet to his death from Chicago's Soldier Field football stadium during a Bears game against the Philadelphia Eagles yesterday. Witnesses said the man, who has been identified as 23-year-old Stuart Haverty of Woodstock, Ill., appeared to run to a ledge in an upper-level seating area and leap. He landed on a small rooftop outside of the stadium and was declared dead at a local hospital, AP reports.

It was the second stadium tragedy in just days. Click here for more on last week's tragedy at a Lakers game at the Staples Center.
