WACO (AP) - A Baylor University stadium construction worker was killed and a co-worker was treated for hypothermia after an accident that plunged both into the Brazos River.

Waco police said the two men were working on a pedestrian bridge over the river on Tuesday. They were pulled into the water when some construction equipment they were harnessed to fell from a floating dock.

Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton says one man unfastened his safety harness and made it to the surface. He was treated and released from a hospital. Divers found the body of the other man, 55-year-old Jose Dario Suarez from Manor, Texas, on Tuesday night.

The new 45,000-seat, $260 million McLane Stadium is being built on a 93-acre site near the river.
