INGLEWOOD (CNS) - A construction worker was fatally injured today in a fall at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood.
The builder, Turner AECOM Hunt, issued a statement this afternoon confirming that an iron worker fell from the roof structure of the stadium this morning and died at the scene. The victim was not immediately identified.
“This is an extremely sad day. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and colleagues at this extremely difficult time. 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.''
The Los Angeles Times reported that the worker fell at least 60 feet while working on the roof in the southeast corner of the stadium near one of the massive concrete columns that support the structure.
The $5 billion stadium under construction at 1000 S. Prairie Ave. will be home to the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers.
