Omar Sandoval Rangel Killed in Construction Accident in Fort Worth, TX
Fort Worth, TX -- March 7, 2023, Omar Sandoval Rangel was killed following an accident where he fell during construction work.
According to initial details given by Tarrant County officials, the incident happened at around 11:00 a.m. along 3100 Northwest Centre Drive, which is near Lake Worth just off the TX 199 and Loop 820 interchange.
Authorities said that 39-year-old Omar Sandoval Rangel was working on a roof installation at the time. Somehow, he fell, resulting in fatal injuries. No one else was said to be hurt. Right now, additional details cannot be confirmed.
Unfortunately, it wouldn't be surprising if that's the last the public heard about this tragic event. The fact of the matter is work accidents do not get the attention they deserve here in Texas—not from authorities, not from the public, not from media outlets, and sometimes not even from OSHA. As a result, countless families are left to pick up the pieces on their own.
I can only hope that the information we're seeing now—which is more than usual, believe it or not—is a sign steps are actually being taken here to get this man's loved ones the answers they deserve.
