COLLEGE STATION (December 3, 2013) A 25-year-old worker died after a four-story fall late Tuesday morning at Kyle Field at Texas A&M, which is undergoing a $450 million upgrade.
No information about the worker’s injuries or condition was initially released locally, but the Occupational Safety and Health Administration confirmed to KBTX-TV in Bryan that it was investigating a fatal accident at the stadium site.
A university statement issued later identified the victim as Angel Garcia, who was working for Lindamood Demolition when the accident happened at around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday at the north end of the field.
Garcia was taken to St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center in Bryan where he died a short time later.
A live stream from a camera focused on the construction site was temporarily discontinued after the accident Tuesday.
It was the second major incident this year at a construction site on the A&M campus.
In June, four workers were injured when the school’s new equine center collapsed while under construction.
The upgrade will increase Kyle Field’s seating from 82,600 to 102,500, making it the largest stadium in the Southeastern Conference.
