Another worker dies on site of new 49ers stadium

The new home of the 49ers is coming with a cost that can’t be accounted for.

According to, a steelworker died when steel rebar fell on him at the stadium construction site.

He’s the second worker to die on the site, as another man was killed when an elevator counterweight fell on him in June, stopping construction for two days. There were no fines or citations from the previous incident.

According to Peter Melton, spokesman for Cal-OSHA, a subcontractor worked for Gerdau Ameristeel, and the accident was reported at 6:45 a.m. (Pacific).

Our thoughts are with the family of the victim, and the people who have to go back to work there in the future, knowing the site has already claimed two lives.
