MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Brewers fan who fell into the bullpen during a game was treated and released from a hospital.

A spokeswoman for Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin says the man was treated at the Milwaukee-area trauma center after falling before the eighth inning of Tuesday’s 6-4 loss to Minnesota. He was released that night.

The hospital said Wednesday the man did not want to make his name known, though he was grateful for all the well-wishes and concern.

The man was carried off on a stretcher after the fall of roughly 15 feet from a dining area overlooking the bullpen. The area had a metal railing about four feet high.

Reliever Brandon Kintzler said the man laid motionless for a few minutes, and that he thought he had died.
