For the second time in as many Saturday afternoons, a Georgia Tech fan toppled over a Bobby Dodd Stadium railing during a Yellow Jacket football defeat.
The student, who was not named, was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital with a shoulder injury and was later released.
On Sept. 22, Jose Espinosa survived a 20-foot fall at the stadium during Tech’s loss to Miami (Fla.). A school athletic official told WSB that the rails are up to code and that both incidents were fans on their own falling accidently.
Last month, a 20-year-old fan from Tennessee fell over a 33-inch railing at the Georgia Dome, and fell to his death during a Tennessee-N.C. State college football game.
