A man died at the site of a new casino under construction in Jamul, San Diego County Sheriff’s Department confirmed Tuesday.
San Diego County Sheriff’s Deputies were called to the Hollywood Casino Jamul location along State Route 94 just before 8:30 a.m.
The victim, identified as a 56-year-old man, fell from a 38-foot platform at the top of a man lift, according to deputies.
C.W. Driver’s CEO Dana Roberts, CEO issued a statement saying the company was mourning “one of our own.”
“All of us at C.W. Driver send our thoughts and prayers to our colleague’s family and friends, and anyone affected by this tragedy,” Roberts said.
While the company works with investigators,” …it would be inappropriate to speculate as to the circumstances that caused it,” the statement continued.
NBC 7 previously reported that Cal Osha was called to investigate. However, deputies say that because the incident occurred on tribal land, FED-OSHA has launched an investigation.
