According to ABC7, a worker, who was working on SoFi Stadium, the home of the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers, has died. The person, who has not been identified yet, fell to their death.
The worker fell off of the roof structure, according to the contractor. The worker was pronounced dead at the scene, Turner-AECOM Hunt said.
“This is an extremely sad day. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and colleagues at this extremely difficult time,” the company said. “We work extremely hard to prevent days like this and we have halted all construction activity. Counseling services will be made available to all workers on site to support them in the difficult days and weeks ahead.”
Following their death, it’s not clear if work resumed or if the rest of the workers took the rest of the day off.
This is not the first incident at SoFi Stadium. Back in February, a crane collapsed at the site, but thankfully, nobody was injured in that incident.
Due to the coronavirus, work stopped at the site for some time. But has picked up again as the stadium is expected to be open in July.
Barring a delay to the 2020 NFL season, SoFi Stadium is expected to host their first NFL game in September.
