| | Re: Fan dies after falling from stands
That is tragic, and what a waste to plunge to your death for a baseball. I am surprised it doesn't happen more often to be honest, fans get drunk and rowdy and that is never a good thing.
As far as a settlement...every ticket you buy to any event has a waiver attached putting the responsibility for what happens on the fan, within reason of course. I have no doubt a smart lawyer will be hired by the family and they will get compensation.
Next thing might be netting like the ones in Hockey arenas to prevent fans from getting hit by the puck, to keep fans from going over the edge.
