Citi Field concertgoer took acid before fatal fall: police sources

The man who fell to his death after trying to do a flip on a Citi Field balcony during a Dead & Company show allegedly took acid before the fatal plunge, police sources said.

The victim, 46, was also drinking booze and had smoked pot before plummeting some 30 to 50 feet during an intermission, landing on the concrete below around 9 p.m. Friday, a pal told cops, according to law enforcement sources.

The man was pronounced dead at New York-Presbyterian Hospital in Queens.

“I heard people going ‘ahhh’ and see people running. I said ‘bro, someone took a f—ing header,” a fan in a tye-dye tank top told The Post Friday night.

A driver working outside the stadium said he saw the man “flip” before he fell and slammed into the ground.
