Sione Veikoso, a football player at BYU, was tragically killed at a construction site in Hawaii. He was just 22 years old.

Veikoso was reportedly visiting his home in Hawaii when a 15-foot retaining rock wall behind a home partially collapsed and trapped three men.

Veikoso was reportedly pronounced dead on the scene after emergency personnel cleared the rubble. The two other trapped men were taken to the hospital in serious but stable condition, while a third injured man declined to be taken to a hospital.

The 6’7″, 305-pound offensive lineman played in one game last year as a redshirt freshman, after transferring from Arizona State. Kalani Sitake the head coach of BYU offered his condolences.
