Man killed during manhole installation on West Side

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — A Tuesday morning collapse during manhole installation on the West Side is leaving a construction worker dead.

A San Antonio Fire Department spokesperson tells KTSA the man fell 15 feet, but few other details are known.

The project was happening in the 5100 block of Rogers Road in the Westover Hills area. At some point, a 51-year-old man became trapped when part of the shoring failed, which caused the hole to collapse.

Identification of the man has yet to be released.

More details will be given when possible.
