Baseball Fan Almost Replays Fatal Fall

On the day a memorial service was held in Texas for a baseball fan who suffered fatal injuries while reaching for a ball, a man at Major League Baseball's Home Run Derby nearly took a similar fall.

During the contest at Chase Field in Phoenix, Keith Carmickle of Kingman, Arizona, stepped on a small table and reached over a railing for a ball hit by Milwaukee Brewers star Prince Fielder, AZCentral.com reported.

Carmickle lost his balance and tumbled over the railing head first. His brother, Kraig Carmickle, a friend, Aaron Nelson, and a couple of other men caught him by his limbs, saving him from an estimated 20-foot fall to the stadium's pool deck, according to the site.

"He tried to catch it. I grabbed his legs and his brother grabbed his arms," Nelson told AZCentral. "So when he went over the ledge, we pulled him back. He wasn't going down. I was holding on."
