SAN ANTONIO – The Bexar County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the construction worker who fell to his death at Loop 410 and Highway 151 on June 15th. Authorities say Gerardo Lopez fell from a bridge that was under construction at that location. Mr. Lopez had worked for Williams Brothers Construction for less than a year. 

Falls are the number one cause of construction worker fatalities, according to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA); followed by Electrocutions, Struck by Object, and Caught in Between (or crushing). 

Four years previously, a Williams Brothers Construction employee died of a fall from a highway ramp in San Antonio.
