Man falls from club level to lower level

A male spectator has fallen from the club level at Rangers Ballpark to the seats below on the first level, and the game has been stopped.

Nelson Cruz was batting in the bottom of the fifth inning and sent a foul ball into the seats along the first base side. The ball went onto the club level above the fan, said a witness. The fan leaned over to catch the carom, went over the railing, tried to catch himself on the lower suite level and flipped forward onto the seats below.

The fan's condition was not immediately known. The game has resumed.

They just announced he is in stable condition and responsive. Thank God.

They are saying he is okay. Do you know what section he fell from?

I'm not sure, but apparently he tried to catch the railing below, which leads me to believe the top level. Four were injured that he fell on, but they are all okay, too.
