4 Workers Hurt In Las Vegas Strip Construction Site Mishap

Four construction workers are being treated for back pain and other injuries after they fell while working at a Las Vegas Strip high-rise site.

None of the injuries was described as life-threatening after the 8:40 a.m. mishap at the $2.8 billion Fontainebleau-Las Vegas site.

Clark County fire spokesman Scott Allison said the four men fell about 30 feet to the ground when a steel rod structure they were working on toppled over.

The mishap was being investigated by Nevada Occupational Safety and Health Enforcement, Allison said.

In August, one man died and two men were hurt in a fall from atop a 30-foot wall at the same work site.

The Fontainebleu is being built by privately held Fontainebleau Resorts LLC. It is due to open in late 2009 with almost 4,000 hotel rooms, a casino, condominiums and spa.
