COLLEGE STATION, Texas— Officials confirmed that at approximately 11:25 a.m. today Angel Garcia, an employee of Lindamood Demolition, fell from the fourth level of the north end of Kyle Field on the campus of Texas A&M University. He was immediately transported to St. Joseph’s Regional Health Center in Bryan, Texas, where he passed away.

“The thoughts and prayers of all of us at the A&M System and within the Bryan and College Station community are with the Garcia family,” said A&M System Chancellor John Sharp.

“On behalf of Texas A&M University and the extended Aggie family I offer our deepest sympathy to the family of the construction worker who tragically passed away,” said Texas A&M University President R. Bowen Loftin.

The Texas A&M System, Manhattan-Vaughan Construction, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Texas A&M University Police Department will continue the investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident. No further details are available at this time.
