A 23-year-old Illinois man fell to his death from a ledge in an upper-deck area of Soldier Field during Sunday's game between the Chicago Bears and the Philadelphia Eagles. It was the second death in a week involving falls at professional sports venues. On top of that, a small boy at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Ariz., survived an approximately 10-foot tumble over a railing and onto a green tarp behind the end zone during the closing minutes of Friday's UCLA-Arizona State football game. The incident, captured on video, occurred following a UCLA touchdown, and reports indicate that stadium officials attended to the boy for several minutes before a worker carried him off. The boy didn't cry and sat upright in the worker's arms. He did not appear to be seriously injured.
