Texas A&M stadium fall, that’s the story of renovations at a football stadium gone wrong this week following a construction worker falling a full four stories, ending his life. The demolition worker was 25 years old, and new details from a sports Fox News report this Wednesday, Dec. 4, say that the man died of the injuries he sustained on impact in the fatal fall, passing away later in a nearby hospital.

The Texas A&M stadium fall involves Mr. Angel Garcia of Texas, a 25-year-old construction worker who was in the process of renovating the popular football stadium for the Lindamood Demolition Company. According to a recent university statement, the accident took place just before noon this Tuesday afternoon, at the far north area of Kyle Field.

Although the exact reasons for the deadly fall have not been identified at this time, it is known that something went wrong during the restoration process leading to the fall. The 25-year-old construction worker didn’t die immediately after impact, but passed away shortly after being admitted to the St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center, located in Bryan.

A full investigation into the Texas A&M stadium fall is currently being conducted by both the A&M University System of Texas, Kyle Field officials, and the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Under the new renovations being made to Kyle Field, the football stadium is being remodeled with over $450M in various upgrades (including vastly expanded fan seating and new grass implementation), which would make it the very biggest stadium in the Southeastern Conference, when completed.
