ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Texas Rangers are providing no additional information on the condition of a male fan knocked unconscious after falling 21 feet in a stairwell while leaving a game at Rangers Ballpark.

Citing privacy laws, the team Sunday gave no updates on what happened the previous night. Nearly two months ago, Brownwood firefighter Shannon Stone died after tumbling out of first-row seats and about 20 feet to concrete behind the left-field wall when he reached out to catch a baseball tossed his way.

Arlington police investigators said after Saturday night's game that they were trying to determine exactly how the 24-year-old man fell, but considered it an accident.

Police and fire officials said Sunday they had no updates.
