Fan who fell at Coors Field dies

Ugh.  The fan who fell from a stairway at Coors Field on Tuesday has died, reports the Denver Post.  His name was Robert Seamans of Pueblo, Colorado. He was 27.

Sadly, it seems like his death was totally preventable: Seamans was attempting to slide down the railing when he lost his balance.  The picture accompanying the article in the Post shows the stairway in question. It doesn’t look like a good place for horseplay.  The only silver lining here is that Seamans was an organ donor and his organs were able to be harvested to so that others may live.

Do yourself and society a favor, folks: (a) don’t do dangerous things; and (b) become an organ donor.
