Former Condors player Andrew Carroll jumped to his death from an airport upper level Saturday, according to a police document. The reasons Carroll jumped or the distance he fell remain unclear.
A news release from Chicago police reported that officers responded to a call on Saturday of a “person down,” bleeding profusely in the outside lanes of Terminal 2. Officers observed 32-year-old Carroll suffering from head trauma. The victim was transported by ambulance to a local hospital in critical condition.
A review of closed circuit cameras in Terminal 2 determined that the victim jumped from the upper level roadway to the lower level roadway of his own accord, according to the release.
No further information was provided.
Carroll, 32, played for the Condors during the 2013-14 season. He scored 16 points — eight goals and eight assists — in 50 regular season games while adding 118 penalty minutes to his season stat line. He then totaled eight points in 16 playoff games as Bakersfield advanced to the ECHL’s Western Conference Finals.
“He was high energy, hard working and very coachable,” said former Condors coach Troy Mann, who coached Carroll that season. “He was a heart-and-soul kid, a fan favorite and he scored some big goals for us in the playoffs.”
The Condors are planning a moment of silence prior to Friday’s 7 p.m. game against San Diego.
