SAN FRANCISCO (WHAS11) – For the second time in four months, a worker has died at the construction site for a new NFL stadium.
A subcontractor was killed Monday morning in San Francisco after a load reinforcing bars somehow fell on him.
The site was shut down for the day as a precaution.
In June, another worker was killed when an elevator counterweight struck him in the head while he was at the bottom of the shaft.
The new stadium for the San Francisco 49'ers has been under construction since last year and is set to be complete by the 2014 football season.
