    Regardless of the time of year or a person's age, it is sad to hear that this happened. My heart goes out to his family. I don't live in Texas so I only get what is posted via The Eagle. That said, I'm not trying to sound cold but did they shut down the complete construction site or just the area his was working. Obviously, the construction cameras were shut down.

    To all have a safe and peaceful holiday season.

    This same thing happened almost 33 years ago. In mid 1980 my father worked with the construction company that put in the upper decks at Kyle Field. I was only 8 or 9 at the time but i remember my father being off work for a short time to investigate the accident due to a man who fell from the upper deck while they were trying to pump the concrete up to form the upper structure. Sad that history is repeating itself with another accident while trying to make Kyle field bigger and better. My condolences go out to this man's family for their loss. Very sad and tragic for this man's death and that this may overshadow the expansion project.

    I guess the System spokesperson is now the University spokesperson. That's interesting.
