ATLANTA, Ga. -

The man who died after a 65-foot fall at Turner Field in Atlanta Monday night has been identified. Officials said 29-year-old Ronald Homer of Conyers fell during the Braves Phillies game.

Atlanta police said the fall appeared to be accidental and added it is too early to tell if alcohol played a factor. An autopsy is planned Tuesday.

This is the second falling death at an Atlanta sporting venue in the last year. On Aug. 31, a Tennessee fan died after falling about 45-feet at the Georgia Dome during a college football game between North Carolina State and Tennessee.
