A male fan was injured after apparently falling out of the stands and landing onto the warning track at Wrigley Field during a game between the Chicago Cubs and Atlanta Braves, according to the Associated Press.

The fan, who has not been identified, was immediately assisted by medical personal on-site, being put in a neck brace and eventually being carted off the field.

According to the Cubs, the fan had attempted to jump onto the field from the bleachers.

The incident occurred after both teams had left the field due to a rain delay.

There is no immediate word on the man’s condition.
