Man dies in construction accident at Baylor football stadium

Posted: Updated:
WACO, Texas -

A Baylor University stadium construction worker has been treated for hypothermia after a Brazos River accident in which a fellow employee died.

Waco police on Wednesday identified the fatality as 55-year-old Jose Dario Suarez from Manor.

Police on Tuesday afternoon responded to a possible drowning during near-freezing temperatures. Two men working on a pedestrian bridge over the river were pulled into the water when some construction lift equipment fell from a floating dock.

Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton says both men were harnessed to the equipment. One man unfastened his safety harness and made it to the surface. He was treated and released from a hospital. Swanton says Suarez was still attached to the equipment by his harness when divers found his body Tuesday night.

An autopsy has been ordered.
