Tragedy continues to strike behind the scenes at the stadiums of the NL East. 


A few weeks after an innovative beer salesman was found ​frozen in a refrigerator at the home of the Atlanta Braves, a vendor at ​Citi Field has choked and passed away at the stadium​ following the Mets' loss to the Phillies on Tuesday night. 


The vendor, Hussnain Shah, worked full time at the stadium and lived with his parents in Queens Village, according to his neighbor. He and his family came to the US from Pakistan a year ago.  

​​Shah lost consciousness around 10:30 p.m., according to those on the scene. After a policeman was alerted to his condition, paramedics rushed over and gave the 30-year-old CPR before transporting him to New York Presbyterian Hospital in Queens, where he was pronounced dead. 

"Words cannot describe how devastated all of us at Aramark, and especially our Aramark colleagues at Citi Field, are by the tragic loss of our coworker and friend, Hussnain." said Aramark concessions spokesman David Friereich, "Our prayers and thoughts are with his family and loved ones at this exceptionally difficult time."


Shah had been working at Citi Field for the last two seasons.
