Did you witness man's fall off escalator at Rays game?



The 27-year-old man who fell from the escalator after the Tampa Bay Rays game at Tropicana Field on Wednesday night was sitting side-saddle on the handrail, a witness told firefighters.

Jason Graham, of Palmetto, was seriously injured after falling about 40 feet from the escalator near the Tropicana Field food court. He suffered broken bones to both legs and other injuries, police said.
