Jimmy Bramlett of LAist.com reports this afternoon from here in Los Angeles:
A 49-year old vendor died in the Vin Scully Press Box at Dodger Stadium of unknown causes. Being the first open workout a day before the National League Divisional Series against the St. Louis Cardinals, most media members were not in the press box when the vendor died.
Access to the press box was blocked off pending the arrival of the coroner, however bags, laptops and cameras were retrieved for the media by several members of the Dodgers staff. More details as they come in.
I’ve since been told by a media source at the stadium that the vendor died of a heart attack. The media has been moved to a large suite.
