Fan Dies from Fall at Soldier Field, Chicago Sports Autumn of Tragedy Continues


It’s been a very tragic autumn for Chicago Sports and the people who cover them. The second city must now deal with the third highly-publicized death of an individual connected to the local sports scene.

Anita Kustok, mother CSN Chicago reporter Sarah Kustok, and former Northwestern QB Zak Kustok was murdered in late September. A couple days before Halloween, Notre Dame student videographer Declan Sullivan was killed when his hydraulic scissor-lift collapsed in historically high winds. The circumstances surrounding both of those deaths are still being investigated.

And then today, during the Chicago Bears-Philadelphia Eagles, a man in his 20s died from falling out of Soldier Field and landing on a roof-top.
