    Man falls to death at Soldier FieldEmail Print Comments14 Associated Press

    CHICAGO -- Authorities say a man died after falling at least 20 feet from a ledge at Soldier Field while attending a Chicago Bears game.

    Chicago police said the man fell at about 4:55 p.m. ET Sunday during the NFL matchup between the Bears and the Philadelphia Eagles. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

    Chicago Fire Chief Joe Roccasalva said the man landed on a small rooftop on the outside of the stadium. Witnesses told authorities the man ran to a ledge and jumped. Roccasalva said the man was in his 20s, but his name hasn't been released.

    It's the second death in a week at a major sporting arena. On Nov. 21, a 2-year-old boy fell from a luxury box at the Staples Center during a Los Angeles Lakers game.

    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!).
