Construction halts at SoFi Stadium after worker falls to death

Construction at SoFi stadium, the future home to both the Los Angeles Rams and Chargers, was halted on Friday morning after a worker fell to their death. The incident was first reported by Fox 11 in Los Angeles.

Inglewood Police say the fall was first reported to them at 11:44 a.m.. They did not immediately release the identity of the construction worker, who was pronounced dead on the scene.

KTLA is reporting that the worker fell from a height of 50 or 60 feet.

The Rams started construction on the stadium in late 2016. The $5 billion project is scheduled to finish in July of this year, and is on track to host SuperBowl LVI in February of 2022.

The stadium is set to hold its first event when the Rams host the Saints for a preseason game on August 14.
