Remember the guy that died at Soldier Field last week????
I was at one of my vendors yesterday, and he told me that THAT guy was a competitor of his company.
Of course, this is third party information, so take it with a grain of salt....but,
He worked at Fox Tool, in Woodstock, IL.
Apparently the owner of the company took everybody to the game and around halftime the guy disappeared saying he had to use the rest room.
Then, apparently .... and this is by no means the "official" story, and witnesses are saying two different things....
But, apparently this guy smoked. And you're not allowed to smoke at the stadium any longer.
So he was looking for some place to sneak off to and have a cigarette. He thought he could sneak around one of the columns at the stadium and not be seen. There in lies the problem.
You have to literally JUMP to the Column to get around it.
This is why some are saying that they seen him take a running start and just jump to his death.
But it is also believed that he was merely just trying to make the column...and missed.
Now....I have been places were having a nicotine fit is very real. But I have NEVER thought about going to those extremes to smoke a cigarette.
Oh.....and apparently they were ALL drinking, but come on!....of course they're drinking!
They're at a game; for crying out loud!
I hope the media doesn't jump all over that.
Any one of us would have been drinking also.
Poor guy just misjudged the leap. All for a cigarette. YIKES!!!!
