A construction worker at Disneyland reportedly died Thursday after being struck by a metal plate, according to a report.
Javier Jimenez, 38, was working on an air-conditioning system inside an eight-foot trench in a backstage area outside the Anaheim resort, The Los Angeles Times reported.
The contractor was hit when a piece of equipment being lowered into the trench hit a crossbeam that knocked over the metal plate.
He was taken to the hospital where he died.
“We are saddened by this tragic accident involving a contractor and on behalf of Disneyland Resort extend our deepest sympathies to Mr. Jimenez’s family, friends and coworkers,” a Disneyland spokeswoman said in a statement, according to The Times.
