    "Coroner: Fan struck in head by foul ball during Dodgers game died of blunt force injury"

    "Linda Goldbloom, a mother of three and grandmother of seven, died
    on Aug. 29 [2018]. The coroner's report states the cause as "acute
    intracranial hemorrhage due to history of blunt force trauma" and
    states that the injury occurred when she was struck in the head
    with a baseball during the Aug. 25 game at Dodger Stadium."

    "For three days, Goldbloom was unresponsive, Brody said, except
    when a nurse saw her move one finger one time upon being asked
    whether her name was Linda. Her eyes never opened at the hospital,
    and a ventilator kept her breathing."

    "Brody told OTL on Monday that she and her family would not comment
    on any agreement with the Dodgers or possible legal action, but
    she said she hopes to have a fund established in her mother's
    memory to assist victims of such accidents and their families."

    To reevaluate the corresponding Scene in "A prayer for Owen Meany" by John Irving.

    Given his obstinate determination to stay ignorant, the troll Mchill should not read my posts.

    Possibly because she identifies with the foul ball. It represents latent danger.

    because it wasn't a gun related death?

    Nobody is suggesting we need to know it are they?
    Why did you even ask the question ... why not stay quiet?

    The spats between you and D64 are rather tedious you know.

    Interesting story.

    I can't imagine there is a legal claim (even in USA) don't
    you go to sports venues at your own risk? There must be
    quite a few spectator deaths over the years at golf tournaments
    and rally cross. Can't recollect any action being taken.

    Brittanie Nichole Cecil (March 20, 1988 – March 18, 2002) was a hockey fan who died from injuries suffered when a puck was deflected into the stands and struck her in the left temple at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, on March 16, 2002.
    Died: March 18, 2002 (aged 13); Columbus, Ohio
    Born: Brittanie Nichole Cecil; March 20, 1988

    Death of Brittanie Cecil - Wikipedia

    I believe because of that death is the reason they started putting the netting up at each end of the NHL arena's for the fans safety. Now there is nothing but glass along the sides so if a puck when over the glass hard enough we could see it happen again unfortunately.
