MINNEAPOLIS – Today at approximately 7:45 AM on the U.S. Bank Stadium construction site, two workers from Berwald Roofing were injured when they fell while performing roofing work on the north side of the building. The two workers immediately received medical attention on site and were transported to a local hospital. One of the workers died from his injuries and the second worker is in serious condition.

All work on the project has been stopped.

Mortenson Construction officials will hold a press conference at 11:30 AM at the project office located at 1010 South 7th Street in Minneapolis.

In a statement, the Vikings said that “today is an extremely sad day for the Minnesota Vikings organization and the entire stadium team. Our sincere thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the individual who passed away, the worker who remains hospitalized, and the more than 1,000 dedicated construction workers who are on the site every day and are also affected by this accident.”
