Early this morning in San Antonio, a construction worker died after falling roughly 50 feet from a highway bridge.
The man was part of a construction project at U.S. 281 and Loop 1604. He was adding metal to the bridge frame when the construction accident took place.
Authorities have been investigating the slip and fall accident. They believe that the worker was properly secured in a safety harness, but the harness may not have been connected to a safe location.
Our thoughts are with the man’s family and friends during this tragic time.
