JLA garage fall proves fatal for Wings fan

As noted by MLive's Brendan Savage, earlier this evening, WDIV reported that a young man passed away after the Wings' game against Minnesota after a fall from some height in the Joe Louis Arena parking garage. His death was accidental.

I saw the report (which is embedded in the story) on the evening news, and don't know what to say other than to suggest that you read the story if you wish. Pretty awful stuff.

Articos died when he fell 30 feet after attempting to slide down a railing in the garage.

It’s incredibly sad and an example of youthful hubris being sometimes fatal. I don’t see a lawsuit forthcoming given that the student’s behavior was the reason for his death, not defect or negligence on the part of the garage operators.
