GREEN BAY (NBC 26) — A construction worker who got trapped at Lambeau Field due to a work accident on Thursday, June 15, has died from his injuries.

The worker was an employee at Mavid Construction who was critically injured while working at Lambeau Field. Mavid Construction says the carpenter died due to his injuries on Saturday, June 17.

Mavid states the worker was a second-generation employee who worked alongside his father and brother at Mavid Construction.

A statement from Mavid reads, "As a family-owned company, this loss has truly impacted us all. Our main concern is for the well-being of our employee's family, our team members who were on the project site, and our entire team who worked with this employee. His decision to be an organ donor will save many lives."

A statement from Miron Construction Co., Inc. reads, "We are deeply saddened to confirm that the individual employed by one of our subcontractors, Mavid Construction, who was involved in a serious incident on Thursday, June 15 on our Lambeau Field project site has succumbed to his injuries. We extend our most sincere sympathies to his family, friends, team members, and others who have been impacted by this tragedy."

Our thoughts are with those impacted during this difficult time.”

The name of the worker has not been released.

An investigation with both Miron Construction and Mavid Construction has been opened by the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

OSHA has six months to complete its investigation, issue citation and propose monetary penalties if they find violations of workplace safety regulations contributed to the workers' fatal injuries.
