Fortese’s brother, Jimmy, said Fortese lost consciousness and stopped breathing. An off-duty Maryland state trooper in the crowd performed CPR and revived him.
“It’s very serious,” Jimmy Fortese said of his brother’s condition. “They’re not saying he’s out of the woods yet. They tell us we have to wait and see.”
Matthew Fortese was on a date with another couple, and was wearing a Yankees hat, his brother said. The two men had been throwing things throughout the game, and Matthew and his date were eventually hit with a full beer.””
