COLLEGE STATION, Texas, Dec. 3 (UPI) -- A 25-year-old construction worker died Tuesday after falling from the fourth level of Kyle Field at Texas A&M University, school officials said.

"Officials confirmed that at approximately 11:25 a.m. today Angel Garcia, an employee of Lindamood Demolition, fell from the fourth level of the north end of Kyle Field on the campus of Texas A&M University," the university said in a release. "He was immediately transported to St. Joseph's Regional Health Center in Bryan, Texas, where he passed away."

Manhattan-Vaughn Construction of Houston is leading a $450 million redevelopment project that began immediately following the last home game of the school's 2013 football season.

"The thoughts and prayers of all of us at the A&M System and within the Bryan and College Station community are with the Garcia family," A&M System Chancellor John Sharp said.

"On behalf of Texas A&M University and the extended Aggie family, I offer our deepest sympathy to the family of the construction worker who tragically passed away," Texas A&M University President R. Bowen Loftin said.

The Texas A&M System, Manhattan-Vaughan Construction, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Texas A&M University Police Department were investigating the incident.
