Construction worker killed in fall from downtown Los Angeles high-rise hotel
A man who fell to his death from the 53rd floor of a high-rise building in downtown Los Angeles on Thursday had no safety harness on and was not working, a spokeswoman with the construction company on the project said.

The man, who remained unidentified pending notification of his family, fell from the Wilshire Grand Center at 624 S. Figueroa St., onto a passing vehicle just after 12:30 p.m. The 73-story hotel is under construction and the work is being done by Turner Construction Co..

“We have confirmed with Cal/OSHA and LAPD that the incident which occurred at the Wilshire Grand project site today was not work-related,” according to a statement from Turner Construction. “After an initial on-site investigation, Cal/OSHA has confirmed that no fall-protection violations were observed.” A spokeswoman for the company said all workers have to wear harnesses and all barriers were in place, but the man was not performing work on the 53rd floor. It was unclear what he was doing on the 53rd floor, and the spokeswoman said she could not elaborate.

The man was an electrician who was on his second day on the job, according to reports from the scene. “We were deeply saddened to learn that we have lost a member of the team building the Wilshire Grand Center,” according to a statement from Turner. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the worker’s family. On any given day, there are 1,000 men and women working on this project. The entire team working on this project is committed to the safety of all of our workers, and we will do everything we can to understand what happened here today and prevent it from happening again.”

The area remained cordoned off for several hours as investigators worked to determine the circumstances of the man’s fall. His body lay covered next to a white sedan and an investigators’ tent.
