According to officials, 46-year-old John Guerrero Jr. was working with a crew installing interior walls. At some point, Guerrero apparently reported feeling sick. He later died due to what investigators deemed was a heat stroke.

In the reports, officials described the work site as not having any protection from the sun outside of the workers' vehicles. It was said to be a "multi-employer" work site where water and Gatorade were provided. However, the OSHA summary claims that Guerrero "was not trained on how to identify the symptoms of heat illness and their severity." Right now, additional details have not been confirmed.
