Construction worker dies at Texas A&M stadium
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - A demolition worker has died of injuries received when he fell four stories from Texas A&M's under-renovation football stadium.
A university statement says Angel Garcia was working for Lindamood Demolition when the accident happened about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday at the north end of Kyle Field. The 25-year-old worker died a short time later at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center in Bryan.
The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the Texas A&M University System and university police are investigating the accident.
Kyle Field is undergoing $450 million in upgrades to put in new grass and expand seating from 82,600 to 102,500. That would make it the largest stadium in the Southeastern Conference.
