A construction worker tragically lost his life after falling at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood Friday morning, officials said.
Responding officers found a man down at the site and he was declared dead at the scene, according to a report from the Los Angeles Times. The report also stated that construction has been halted for the time being.
A witness who saw what happened stated the worker fell 50 to 60 feet while working on the southeast corner of the stadium.
SoFi Stadium was initially scheduled to open on July 25th with a Taylor Swift concert, but it was rescheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Now, the first major event looks like it will be the Rams’ preseason game against the New Orleans Saints on August 14.
