The alternate is much better even though you don't see any more spectators.
But you do have a better feeling that it isn't some little guy sleeping,

Maybe a wider angle lens to show more background with the boy and his father
still strong in the foreground would be the way I'd attack it.

Then the sleeping subject maintains the main point of interest without
loosing him amongst a lot of surrounding people. Let the people trail off
into the background even dropping out of focus.
