TRAGIC ACCIDENT

Woman, 79, Was Killed by a Foul Ball at Dodger Stadium

A woman was killed by a foul ball at the Dodger Stadium last August. Linda Goldbloom’s death, which was not made public until now, came after she was struck in the head by a foul ball. A Los Angeles County medical examiner’s report seen by USA Today says the 79-year-old died from “acute intracranial hemorrhage” and the manner of death was listed as an accident. Goldbloom was a Dodgers fan and mother of three. She was sitting just above the area protected by netting. “Ushers came down and asked if she was all right, and she said no, then EMTs came and rushed her to the hospital—she threw up in the ambulance,” her daughter, Jana Brody, told ESPN. She died three days later in a hospital. The Dodgers said in a statement: “Mr. and Mrs. Goldbloom were great Dodgers fans who regularly attended games. We were deeply saddened by this tragic accident and the passing of Mrs. Goldbloom. The matter has been resolved between the Dodgers and the Goldbloom family. We cannot comment further on this matter.”
