Cubs Fan Tragically Dies After Falling Over Railing At Wrigley Field


Tuesday night at Wrigley Field a Cubs fan tragically died by falling over a railing. Richard E. Garrity, 42, was pronounced dead at 3:33 p.m. Wednesday at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.  Garrity was taken by private ambulance to the hospital, police said. The Cubs released this in a statement on the horrific incident “The thoughts and prayers of our entire organization are with his family during this difficult time.”

Let’s see what Twitter had to say about this tragic accident.

What a horrific tragedy. This reminds me of when a fan fell over a railing at a Texas Rangers game back in 2011 trying to catch a baseball thrown to him by Josh Hamilton. Garrity’s father said in a statement “He was a great guy, everyone loved him.” Such a sad story. Something like this is not supposed to happen at the ballpark.
