NEW YORK (AP) _ A fan fell off an escalator at Yankee Stadium today and plunged 90 feet to his death, police said.

The 37-year-old man was sitting on the rail of an escalator at 5:30 p.m. when he lost his balance and fell, said Officer Valerie St. Rose, a police spokeswoman.

He was taken to Lincoln Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The man’s name was withheld pending notification of his family, and no other information was immediately available.
