Of the 250 people who worked building the tower, nobody died as a result of actually working on the tower. One Italian guy died (Angelo Scagliotti) when he came to the tower to visit it “privately” with his wife and had an accident (source in French: Un seul mort avant l’inauguration). Aug 4, 2016

Gustave Eiffel used latticed wrought iron to construct the tower to demonstrate that the metal could be as strong as stone while being lighter. Eiffel also created the internal frame for the Statue of Liberty. Construction of the Eiffel Tower cost 7,799,401. 31 French gold francs in 1889, or about $1. 5 million.
