Fan at Astros game taken to hospital

HOUSTON -- A male fan laid unresponsive for more than 10 minutes in the stands before the Astros' 6-4 victory over the D-backs on Friday and was transported from Minute Maid Park to a local hospital, according to an Astros spokesman.

The fan was surrounded by paramedics and first responders, who appeared to be giving him chest compressions before he was transported.

An ambulance and fire truck were seen just outside the park waiting to transport the man.

The Astros released a statement:

"Prior to this evening's game, medical personnel transported a fan from Minute Maid Park to the hospital. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family."
