The sports world in the United States was shocked this weekend when the news broke that a woman and her two-year-old son died after falling into the void from the stadium San Diego Petco Park, California, in the preview of the game between Parents and Atlanta Braves on a new day of the Major League Baseball.
The tragic event occurred on Saturday minutes before the start of the game, when thousands of fans were entering the stands to enjoy the sports actions. The 40-year-old woman and her two-year-old son fell from the third floor of the stadium into the street and there they died after agents tried to revive them. It is still unknown if it was an accident or if it was an intentional act.
“They were in a dining / concession area on the esplanade level before the fall,” he explained. Andra Brown, a spokesman for the San Diego Police department, who also noted that the causes of the incident are still being investigated and, “as a precaution, the San Diego Police Homicide Unit was called to the scene.”
Although medics and security forces rushed to the scene of the incident, nothing could be done to save the lives of the woman and her son, who died almost immediately as a result of the severity of their injuries. Local media reported that the boy’s father was also in the stadium at the time of the incident.
The Padres team, meanwhile, made a terse public statement: “We are deeply saddened by the loss of life at Petco Park last night. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of those involved. We will continue to refrain from commenting on the nature of the incident., as it is an ongoing investigation by the San Diego Police Department “
Local authorities have asked for collaboration from anyone who has been in the place and who has witnessed the fall that caused the death of the woman and her son. New testimonies are expected that can help to elucidate the causes of the incident that mourns American society at this time.
