Shannon Stone, a 39-year-old firefighter from Brownwood, Texas made a fatal mistake when he tried to grab a ball for his son. After Texas Ranger Josh Hamilton threw the ball into the stands, Stone dove for the ball and fell head first 20 feet behind the score board.
The little boy screamed in horror as he called for his dad, but fans quickly scooped him up and shielded him from the accident. Stone was still conscious and asked ‘to take care of his son’, but on his way to the hospital, he suffered a cardiac arrest where he later died.
A tragic outcome.
