According to CNN, Gregory Murrey, 60, of Alpharetta, Georgia fell to his death Saturday night at Turner Field during the Yankees-Braves game after falling over an upper deck railing. There are reports that Greg was a season ticket holder for 23 years. There are also reports that Murrey was drunk and yelling at ARod as he came to bat when he fell over the railing.
A fan, who didn’t want to be named, in section 401, told NJ Advance Media the victim was apparently drunk and was screaming at the Yankees when A-Rod came to bat. The fan said the victim flew over her and her two sisters from a row behind her and barely touched them as he went.
The man was in the second row of section 401. It was almost as if he jumped, she said.
She said the victim had been acting belligerently drunk all game. There was still a large wet stain on the railing in section 401 from what she said was his drink. The fans in the area soon left their seats with security, and several rows from the section were cleared out.
Murrey was among those booing, and he had stood up from his second-row seat in the 400 level when he lost his balance, witnesses said. He passed through those in the front row as he toppled over the railing, landing in section 202.
Mr. Murrey was an insurance agent in Roswell, GA
