Tennessee Fans Dies Of Georgia Dome Fall

Isaac Grub, a Tennessee fan who fell from the upper level at the Georgia Dome on Friday has died. The victim was 20-year-old and attending the Tennessee vs. N.C. State game when he fell from about 35 feet from the upper deck and landed on another fan.

Grubb was in the Tennessee student section area when the tragedy occurred. Witnesses said he was celebrating the Vols second touchdown when he fell. Grubb was pronounced dead at a local hospital shortly before midnight.

This was the second instance in as many days of a fan falling to his death at a football stadium. A 25-year-old man fell 60 feet from an escalator at Reliant Stadium in the Texans' final preseason game against the Vikings on Thursday night.
