SAN FRANCISCO - A football fan who fell from an elevated pedestrian walkway and died at San Francisco's Candlestick Park during the 49ers-Green Bay Packers game has been identified.
San Francisco police spokesman Gordon Shyy says multiple people witnessed his fall onto a sidewalk from the Jamestown walkway, which goes around Candlestick.
According to police, witnesses say the man appeared intoxicated when he fell just after kickoff at about 1:30 p.m. PT Sunday in the 49ers' 34-28 win over the Packers. Off-duty medics and police officers gave him first aid until an ambulance arrived, but Hayes was declared dead from his injuries.
It was not immediately clear how many feet he had fallen.
