A Texas A&M stadium fall is one tragic case that’s struck the Texas community this week, as a 25-year-old construction worker fell and was killed this Tuesday after falling four stories from Kyle Field. The man was hard at work on stadium renovations on the north side of the park when he suddenly lost his balance in a fatal fall, UPI.com shares this Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013.

The Texas A&M stadium fall occurred this Tuesday afternoon. The man in question who passed away was Angel Garcia, who worked for Lindamood Demolition. The 25-year-old construction worker was up roughly four stories, helping improve the stadium’s $450 million worth of renovations, when he fell.

"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 and Kyle Field President R. Bowen Loftin said in a recent statement.

The tragic incident comes only a day after another shocking occurrence took place at another stadium, Arrowhead Stadium (home of the Chiefs). Although a man also died, this case happened to be a homicide, rather than an accident; it is believed to have been a vehicle break-in turned violent and gone terribly wrong.

After he was discovered following the Texas A&M stadium fall, Garcia was rushed to a local hospital, but died only moments after being admitted.
