Man critically injured in fall at RFK Stadium

It is barely mid april and the geniuses are in full bloom...



WASHINGTON (AP) - A man was critically injured when he fell from the top level of RFK Stadium after the Atlanta Braves-Washington Nationals game Wednesday night.

The 35-year-old man, whose identity was not immediately revealed, fell from a ramp on the 500 level of the stadium, hit several ramps and railings on the way down and landed on the concourse of the 100 level, said Alan Etter, District of Columbia Fire and Emergency Medical Services spokesman.
A witness said the man was looking over a railing before he fell.

"He was just standing there," Maxine Lewis told WJLA TV. "All of a sudden, he just lost his balance, fell over. I saw him hit his head on a railing, then he hit his head on a second railing and just fell flat."

The man was flown to a hospital in a U.S. Park Police helicopter, suffering from multi-system trauma.

Police were investigating whether alcohol was a factor.



I think the word we are looking for here is DUH !
