The victim, identified by the NY Daily News as 46-year-old Ian Crystal, was attending the performance at Citi Field when he fell two stories – about 12 meters – on the concrete floor below.

He was admitted to the New York Presbyterian Queens Hospital but pronounced dead.

Police received the call shortly after 9pm: “Upon arrival, officers watched rescue workers care for a 46-year-old man who was suffering from injuries resulting from a fall from an elevated position,” a spokesman told CNN.

Witnesses told the New York Post that they “flipped” the man before he fell to his death.

“He didn’t react and hit the ground headfirst. There was no way he survived,” said one. “He was way too drunk. You could smell that.”

“His brother came downstairs and found out he had jumped … His brother was with him. He was crying.”

Another added, “We saw someone fall off this ledge … We see something fall and we heard it fall on the floor.”

“It’s awful. I wish I hadn’t seen it … It kind of destroyed the mood. ”

A spokesman for the NY Mets confirmed the accident. “We are aware of a tragic incident which unfortunately resulted in a death last night. Our deepest and sincere condolences go to the relatives of the participant.”

Dead & Company with former Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann as well as John Mayer should take the stage at 7:30 p.m. It is believed that the accident occurred during a break.

According to his LinkedIn page, Crystal was the co-founder and CEO of Evolutions Spirits, based in New York.
