In devastating news, Nathan Fenno of the Los Angeles Times reported on Friday that a construction worker at the site of SoFi Stadium has fallen to his death, citing three people with knowledge of the situation.

According to police, the worker fell at 11:44 a.m. Friday morning. As of now, all work being done at the site in Inglewood has come to a complete halt.

“One person who had been briefed on the incident, who spoke on the condition they not be identified because of the sensitivity of the matter, said the worker fell from a height of 50 to 60 feet while working on the roof in the southeast corner of the stadium near one of the massive concrete columns that support the structure.”

We’ll update this story as more information is learned.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the worker and his family.
