According to various media outlets, 55-year-old construction worker Jose Dario Suarez died following an accident during the construction of Baylor’s new stadium. Two construction men, who were working on a pedestrian bridge over a river, were pulled into almost-freezing water when equipment fell from a floating dock. One of the workers removed his harness and was treated at the hospital. Suarez was still attached to the equipment when the divers found his body Tuesday night.
The incident is being treated as an “industrial accident,” the Waco Tribune reported, and is currently under investigation.
