Report: 21-year-old Korean league pitcher dies after falling off roof of building

Tragedy has reportedly hit South Korea’s KBO League, as Hanwha Eagles pitcher Kim Sung-hoon died early Saturday morning after falling off the roof of a building in the city of Gwangju, according to the Yonhap News Agency. He was 21 years old.

The deadly fall was reportedly from the roof of a nine-story building onto a seventh-story balcony. Kim was immediately sent to the hospital, but was pronounced dead upon arrival, according to police.

Police say no foul play is suspected after analyzing surveillance footage, saying the pitcher apparently lost his footing.
