A 37-year-old worker struck by a metal plate while working on an HVAC system at Disneyland early Thursday, Aug. 29, died later that day.

One of the man’s coworkers called for help shortly before 3:20 a.m., according to a Metro Net Fire dispatcher.

The workers, from a third-party contractor, were in a backstage area installing chiller lines for an HVAC system, said police Sgt. Daron Wyatt, a spokesman for Anaheim Fire & Rescue.

They were lowering a piece of equipment when it hit a beam and knocked over the metal plate. The plate struck the worker, who was in the trench, and knocked him over, Wyatt said.

Firefighters on scene had to load the man – who was down an eight- to ten-foot trench – into a basket and hoist him out, the dispatcher said.

Javier Jimenez, Jr., of West Covina was taken to UCI Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 4:13 a.m., according to coroner’s officials.

“We are saddened by this tragic accident involving a contractor, and on behalf of Disneyland Resort extend our deepest sympathies to Mr. Jimenez’s family, friends and coworkers,” said Liz Jaeger, a spokeswoman for the Disneyland Resort.

The incident occurred outside the theme park area.
