A man has been carted off the field after he apparently fell from the bleachers onto the warning track during a rain delay at Wrigley Field.
The man was face down just in front of the ivy in right-center field Thursday night when officials started running from the dugouts to assist him. They immediately checked his pulse while a medic ran in from right field.
It took three people to turn the man over onto his back. They then pulled up his shirt and put on a brace to stabilize his neck before strapping him onto a backboard and carting him off the field.
Cubs outfielder Albert Almora Jr. and pitching coach Chris Bosio also went out to the outfield to check on the man.

Horrifying sight at Wrigley Field. A fan just fell on the field from the right field wall. Laying on the warning track. Hasn't moved. #Cubs
