A construction worker in his 30s died while working on the SoFi Stadium Friday morning, Inglewood police confirmed.

The iron worker fell to his death at the construction site of the stadium that's set to house the Los Angeles Rams located at 1000 S. Prairie Ave.

Authorities were waiting for CAL-OSHA to arrive and also investigate.

The worker had fallen off a roof, the construction company said.

Further details on the accident weren't immediately available.

The LA Rams are facing off with the New Orleans Saints Aug. 14 in a preseason game, in the first major event set for the new stadium.

The construction company, Turner AECOM Joint Venture, contracted to work on the stadium released a statement:

"This is an extremely sad day. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and colleagues at this extremely difficult time. 

We work extremely hard to prevent days like this and we have halted all construction activity. Counseling services will be made available to all workers on site to support them in the difficult days and weeks ahead."
