NBC News has more details about the fan who fell to his death at Turner Field last night during the rain delay prior to the Phillies-Braves game.

Ronald Homer, 30, of Conyers, Ga., plunged 65 feet onto a parking lot during a rain delay before the game between the Braves and the Philadelphia Phillies … Connie Homer of Conyers, Ga., tells The Associated Press her only son told her in a cellphone call from the Monday night game that rain was starting to let up and he was preparing to go back in the stadium. She says he ended the call in his typical way, telling his mother he loved her. 

NBC News has some pictures and video from the scene. Some of them are kinda graphic, though, so be warned.

Officials are saying it was an accident.
