There was a scary moment at Miller Park in Milwaukee Tuesday, as a fan fell over the outfield wall and had to be stretchered off the field. 

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Tom Haudricourt provided some details of the incident: 

Fortunately, Fox Sports' Andrew Gruman provided an update from the team that sounds encouraging: 

Of course, this isn't the first time we've seen an incident like this happen at a sporting event. In July 2011, a fan died after falling from the stands during a Texas Rangers game. A deadly fall also occurred at Reliant Stadium a year later, while a fan was placed in critical condition this March following a fall at Olympic Stadium in Montreal. 

Those are unfortunately just a few of the stories that are becoming far too common, and we can only hope the fan involved in this incident is able to make a full and quick recovery.
