On November 3, a 25-year-old demolition worker died from injuries he received after he fell four stories while doing renovations on Texas A&M’s football stadium in College Station.

Texas A&M’s Kyle Field is undergoing $450 million in renovations to put in new grass and expand seating from 82,600 to 102,500. A statement from Texas A&M said that the young employee was working for Lindamood Demolition when the accident happened at Kyle Field. The 25-year-old worker died a short time after the four-story fall, after being transported to St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Bryan.

The accident is currently under investigation by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), as well as by the Texas A&M University System and university police.

According to OSHA, slip and falls and trip and falls cause 15 percent of all accidental deaths. This is an alarming statistic for construction workers, as slip, trip and fall accidents are especially common in the construction industry. In 2010, 635 U.S. workers died from falls, and approximately 208,470 workers sustained fall-related injuries in construction accidents.
