A woman and her 2-year-old son died after falling from Petco Park’s third level on Saturday, the San Diego Police Department said.
According to SDPD Lt. Andra Brown, a mother and her son fell from the third level of the stadium to the curb below around 4 p.m., just before the start of the San Diego Padres and Atlanta Braves game.
Brown said the 40-year-old mother and her son were in a dining room / concession area before fall.
Two officers rushed to the scene and discovered the bodies of the woman and child on the sidewalk at 200 Tony Gwynn Way, Brown said.
Officers began CPR on the couple, but due to their fatal injuries, both were pronounced dead at the scene, according to Brown.

The victims’ deaths appeared to be suspicious and, as a precaution, the San Diego Police Homicide Unit was called to the scene, Brown said.
“They described it to me as a six-story fall,” Brown said. “It is too early for us to have information on whether this is intentional or accidental.”
At this time, the police do not have a cause as to why the two fell and are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding their deaths.
Brown said, “We are talking to the boy’s father, they are not married, but we are talking.” The woman and her son are residents of San Diego, Brown told NBC 7.
Brian Howell of San Diegan said many fans who were enjoying the game weren’t aware of what happened, but police and stadium teams began to keep people away from certain areas of the stadium.
“They just kept us out of that area, we thought it was standard protocol, but everyone along this side kept us out of that area,” Howell said. “All we heard was that there could have been an unfortunate incident.”
Detectives are trying to locate evidence and possible witnesses.
“We know there were a lot of people in the esplanade area who may have information on this and if anyone has any information, we would certainly like to hear from them,” Brown said.
Brown said the woman and child have been identified, but police have not released their names at this time.
