Fatal Fall From Golden Gate Bridge

Sponsored by:

Authorities say a construction worker has been killed on the job at the Golden Gate Bridge this morning.

Police say the 42-year-old man landed in the water. An investigation is being conducted by the California Highway Patrol and the California Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Details are still sketchy. But workers tell a San Francisco radio station the man was working on the bridge┬┤s earthquake retrofit project when he fell inside a pillar.

Authorities say this is the first fatality since the retrofit project began.
