ATLANTA - A man fell approximately 65 feet to his death from the upper level platform of Turner Field during a Braves-Phillies game Monday night.

He was taken to Atlanta Medical Center where he then died.

Police are still investigating what could have caused the man to fall, but they did rule out foul-play.

"It appears it was an accidental fall," said Officer John Chafee, an Atlanta police spokesperson. "Investigators are speaking with witnesses and trying to determine further on this."

Police have not yet released the victim's name, and the Atlanta Braves issued a statement simply saying the police were investigating.
