ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — A construction worker has been killed in an accident at Disneyland.
Authorities say the man was working around a trench at a backstage area at 3:19 a.m. Thursday and was hit by a large steel plate after a piece of equipment accidentally struck a cross beam and knocked it down.
Anaheim police say he was transported to a local hospital and pronounced dead.
The man’s identity was withheld for notification of family. The state workplace safety agency says the 38-year-old worked for a contractor.
A Disneyland Resort statement says the company extends its sympathies to the man’s family.
A spokesman for the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health says the department is investigating.
