HOUSTON (AP) - Relatives of a demolition worker have been awarded $53 million over his 2013 death after he fell four stories during renovation of Texas A&M;’s Kyle Field.

Jurors in Houston on Wednesday decided on damages in the negligence lawsuit filed on behalf of Angel Garcia’s mother and two children.

Garcia was working for Irving-based Lindamood Demolition Inc. when a section of concrete fell onto equipment he was operating.

Manhattan-Vaughn, a joint venture partnership between Oklahoma-based Manhattan Construction Co. and Houston-based Vaughn Construction Co., provided management services. The demolition company was found 25 percent liable. Manhattan-Vaughn was determined to be 75 percent liable.

Manhattan-Vaughn JVP attorney Wade Quinn said Thursday the companies plan to appeal. Lindamood President Kayla Lindamood said her company previously settled all claims.
