Fan falls from Busch Stadium upper deck

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A 30-year-old man fell from the upper deck at Busch Stadium on to the concourse below before the St. Louis Cardinals played the Minnesota Twins on Friday night.

Witnesses said it appeared the man fainted in the 92-degree heat.

The fan apparently toppled over a front-row railing and fell about one story to the concourse while a youth choir was singing "God Bless America." The fan was strapped to a gurney and wheeled away shortly after the game began.

Authorities didn't immediately reveal the extent of the injuries, or the fan's name.
