Man injured in stadium fall released from hospital

O'FALLON, Ill. (AP) - An Illinois man who fell about 12 feet head-first from an upper deck at Busch Stadium in St. Louis is out of the hospital.

Thirty-4-year-old Chris Hoffman of O'Fallon was released Monday from St. Louis' Barnes-Jewish Hospital, three days after the accident.

Hoffman apparently fainted Friday night in the 92-degree heat and fell during pre-game ceremonies before the Cardinals faced the Minnesota Twins.
