(Newser) – Tragedy in Atlanta last night, where the Journal-Constitution reports a 29-year-old man died after falling from the upper deck at Turner Field. He tumbled some 65 feet and landed in a parking lot outside of the stadium. Still no word on what caused Ronald Homer to fall, but a police rep says, "at this time, there is no indication of foul play and the fall appears accidental." Heavy rains had led to a nearly two-hour delay of the Braves vs. Philadelphia Phillies game, which was scheduled to start at 7:10pm, notes the AP. The Journal-Constitution adds that a 25-year-old fell 150 feet from the upper deck in May 2008, and also died.
