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.
