Cubs Fan Dies of Head Injuries

A lifelong Cubs fan fell over a railing during a game this week at Wrigley Field and died of head injuries, according to authorities.

Rick Garrity, 42, of Wheaton, was leaving the stadium about 11 p.m. Tuesday when he fell about seven feet and landed on his head near the right field.

The death has been ruled an accident by the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The Cubs say they are investigating the circumstances of the fall, but claim there are no “safety issues” that they know of.
