Don Hawkins, a group leader for the Mormon Community Night held at Dodger Stadium tonight, collapsed from an apparent heart attack near the third-base coach's box just outside the Dodgers' dugout just after 6:00 pm. He was attended by the Dodgers' medical staff administering CPR before two ambulances arrived on the field. Hawkins was taken by ambulance at 6:35 pm, 35 minutes before first pitch of the Dodgers' game against the San Diego Padres.

The man's age, condition and hospital he was taken to has not been released. Stay tuned for updates as they happen.

Updated: Dodgers' public relations just informed that Hawkins passed away at the emergency room at Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles. Time of death has not been released.
