Fan plunges to death at US college football game


(REUTERS) - A Tennessee man fell to his death from the upper deck of the Georgia Dome stadium during a college football game, in the second fatality this week stemming from a fall at a stadium, authorities said on Saturday.

Isaac Grubb, 20, of Lenoir City, Tennessee, died late on Friday at Atlanta's Grady Memorial Hospital following a 11m fall, said Ms Laura Salm, an investigator from the Fulton County Medical Examiner's office.

Grubb fell from the upper deck of the stadium, apparently injuring another fan seated in the mezzanine area.

The second fan was treated and released from Atlanta Medical Center on Friday night, Ms Salm said.
