Fan falls from TGI Friday's into bullpen during Twins-Brewers game

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE, Wis. (KMSP) -

The Twins and Brewers were held up before the eighth inning at Miller Park on Tuesday night after a fan fell over the railing about 15 feet from TGI Friday's Front Row Sports Grill and landed in the Brewers bullpen.

The man was motionless for a few moments, but regained consciousness before being taken off the field on a stretcher and escorted to Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa, Wis. Stadium security and emergency medical personnel tended to the fan during the seventh inning. The man's identity and condition have not been released. He was "conscious and alert" on the way to the hospital, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

Twins manager Rod Gardenhire said he and his team saw the man being carted off the field, but was told he'd recover.

Brewers pitcher Brandon Kintzler thought he was dead, the Associated Press reported. He said the man appeared to be in his 20s. Kintzler saw the man's fingers move while EMTs came to his aid.

After a delayed start to the eighth inning, the Twins maintained their lead after a two-run homer from Brian Dozier, bringing the lead to 6-2 in the fifth, and ultimately, a 6-4 win.

The Twins return to Target Field to host the Brewers on Wednesday at 7:10 p.m.

    There's a big misconception about food vendors at the Minnesota State Fair. Many people think you can set up a booth, work 12 days and make a pile of cash. But it's not that easy. Aside from a lot of hard work, it also takes some luck.
