(AP) California safety officials have issued more than $50,000 in fines against an elevator company whose employee was killed while working at the San Francisco 49ers' new stadium in Santa Clara.


Sixty-three-year-old mechanic Don White was killed June 11 by an elevator counterweight.


The state's Division of Occupational Safety and Health cited Schindler Elevator Corp. on Tuesday for three serious violations, including its alleged failure to enclose counterweights in freight elevators with required guards.


In a statement, Schindler said it intends to vigorously contest the citations, noting that the state had initially found no violations in connection with the incident.


White was the first of two workers to die while working on the new $1.2 billion stadium. The stadium is slated to open next year.
