A Texas A&M stadium fall resulted in the death of a worker at Kyle Field.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the construction of the San Francisco 49ers Levi Stadium has resulted in the deaths of two workers so far. Although, some football fans are more horrified that the 49ers stadium will be inaugurated by a soccer match.
Officials at the school confirmed via an official statement the Texas A&M stadium fall of Angel Garcia, a 25-year-old construction worker:
“Officials confirmed that at approximately 11:25 a.m. today Angel Garcia, an employee of Lindamood Demolition, fell from the fourth level of the north end of Kyle Field on the campus of Texas A&M University. He was immediately transported to St. Joseph’s Regional Health Center in Bryan, Texas, where he passed away.”
University President R. Bowen Loftin has already expressed regrets to the family of Mr. Garcia:
“On behalf of Texas A&M University and the extended Aggie family I offer our deepest sympathy to the family of the construction worker who tragically passed away.”
Houston is currently undergoing a $450 million redevelopment project, and the Texas A&M stadium began construction shortly after the school’s 2013 football season ended. Kyle Field is being expanded to boost its seating capacity from 82,600 to 102,000 people. This project will the Texas A&M stadium the largest in the Southeastern Conference.
The exact cause of the Texas A&M stadium fall has not been released yet but the University System and university police are investigating the accident along with the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
