BEVERLY HILLS – A construction worker was killed at Beverly Hills High School, the Beverly Hills Police Department reported Monday.
Officers were dispatched at 7:26 a.m. Friday to the school, said BHPD Lt. Reginald Evans.
“Officers arrived on scene and began life-saving measures, which were assumed by (Beverly Hills Fire Department) personnel prior to transport to the hospital,” Evans said. “Currently, there is no suspicion of foul play.”
Construction work was halted Friday for mental wellness, officials said, and resumed Monday with counseling services available.
“Although no BHUSD students or staff witnessed the accident due to site inaccessibility, we recognize the impact this has had on the whole construction team,” Beverly Hills Unified School District superintendent Michael Bregy said.
“The Beverly Hills Police Department offered immediate crisis counseling which is greatly appreciated.”
The worker had worked at both the Beverly Hills High and El Rodeo School construction sites “over the last few years,” Bregy said.
“The coming days and weeks will be unimaginable for family, friends, and co-workers and we send our heartfelt condolences to everyone affected,” Bregy said.
