The Miami Marlins new $650 million baseball stadium is 90 percent complete and features a cool–looking retractable roof. But now there are concerns about its safety.
Roy Fastabend, a longtime welder and certified inspector was responsible for making sure that the columns and beams connected to the roof were constructed and welded correctly. But he found unsafe practices instead.
Fastabend said engineering specifications were ignored and contractors cut corners to save time and money. He even caught a fellow inspector falsifying records and approving welds that he never checked out.
“If people knew what was going on there or how they did things, I mean, I won’t go to that stadium, I won’t take my kids to that place,” Fastabend told CBS4 in Miami. “Sadly, it looks beautiful but there are questions.”
