A Wheaton man who struck his head after tumbling over a railing at Chicago's Wrigley Field has died.

The Cook County medical examiner's office said 42-year-old Richard E. Garrity was pronounced dead Wednesday at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

Authorities said Garrity fell over a railing after Tuesday night's game between the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds. Police said he suffered head trauma from the fall.

The medical examiner has scheduled an autopsy for Thursday to determine the cause of death.
