Baylor University Construction Worker’s Family Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit


The family of a construction worker killed in January while working on Baylor University’s new football stadium has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the university and several construction companies, according to The Waco Tribune.

The 55-year-old construction worker drowned on January 28 after a hydraulic lift he and another worker were strapped to slipped from a modular barge and fell into the Brazos River. The other worker was able to free himself after the lift went into the river, but the 55-year-old was not. Divers found the 55-year-old’s body still strapped to the lift over four hours later.
