A man working on the new football stadium at Baylor University was killed in a construction accident on January 28. He and a co-worker were pulled into the Brazos River by a harness that was attached to some equipment that fell into the water. The co-worker was able to release his harness and was later released from a hospital. If you or someone close to you is harmed in this sort of accident, the Todd Durham Law Firm would like to make you aware of your legal options.
Divers found the body of 55-year-old Jose Dario Suarez about four hours after the construction accident occurred, according to an article on the website of a local television station. Suarez and another man were working on a pedestrian bridge over the river in conjunction with the construction of McLane Stadium. Police were unable to speculate on the cause of the accident, stating that one of the workers was still attached to a boom. The co-worker was able to get out of the water and then treated for hypothermia and released at a local hospital.
