Construction Worker Injured On Las Vegas Casino Site

A construction worker has been hospitalized after falling 50 feet while working on a high-rise casino project on the Las Vegas Strip.

Clark County fire spokesman Scott Allison says the man is believed to have suffered a "very critical head injury."

Allison says the department was called to the site of the Cosmopolitan condominium-casino project at about 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Workers told authorities the man was part of a crew lowering a steel support beam on one of the upper floors.

The worker's name has not been released.

He was taken to University Medical Center. State safety officials are
investigating.

The Cosmopolitan is a two-tower project under construction between Bellagio casino-hotel and the MGM Mirage CityCenter project.
