A New Orleans man has died from head injuries sustained after falling from a balcony at a popular city bar on Sunday night, as Fox New 8 reported on Jan. 2, 2013.
Warren Day, 36, was at the Balcony Cafe and Bar on Magazine St. for Sunday's Saints game. Friends of Day say he was a huge fan of the Saints and was really happy when they defeated the Buccaneers. Day was on the balcony with several others celebrating the win and that is when Day fell over the balcony railing, landing on the street and suffered brain injuries.
Day was taken to University Hospital where he was put into a medically induced coma. Unfortunately, Day died on Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2013.
Friends describe Warren Day as someone who lived life to the fullest and say he was a very giving person. Even after losing his life Day was still giving to others, as he was an organ donor.
"He's going to save someones life," Ashley Degeyter said to Fox 8. "It's one last gift, you know?"
Warren Day was well known in the skateboarding community, loved the Saints and was studying to be a marine biologist at the University of New Orleans.
Friends and family of Warren Day plan to celebrate his life with a second line parade this weekend.
