ATLANTA----For a Stone Mountain family it was a devastating blow. They lost their son and brother when he fell to his death as he was helping to build the new Olympic Stadium, now Turner Field.
Jack Falls was welding lights atop the stadium on March 2, 1995, when the cables gave way and he plunged more than 100 feet to the ground. Fellow iron workers wasted no time in dedicating a memorial plaque for Falls, which now is posted on a stadium wall.
Now, the Atlanta Braves moving to a new Cobb County Stadium and the fate of Turner Field in doubt, fall sister Lynne Falls-Shriber, raised her voice looking to retrieve a lasting memento still posted at the Stadium. So far, she has gotten nowhere to gain possession of the Plaque for a family memorial at Falls' grave site.
