A 25-year-old construction worker suffered a fatal fall injury while working on a renovation project at Texas A&M’s Kyle Field. According to A&M officials, at about 11:25 a.m. on Tuesday, December 3, Angel Garcia, an employee of Lindamood Demolition, fell four stories at the campus football stadium. He died a short time later at St. Joseph’s Regional Health Center in Bryan, Texas.
“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,” Texas A&M University President R. Bowen Loftin said in a statement confirming the incident.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), contractor Manhattan-Vaughan Construction, Texas A&M University Police Department, and the Texas A&M System are investigating the fatal fall incident, officials said.
This tragic incident is the second construction accident at the Texas A&M campus this year. On June 22, four workers were injured when a large barn frame collapsed during construction of an equestrian complex at the university. The injured workers were employees of subcontractor, Ramco Erectors, Inc. of Houston.
