Las Vegas Construction Accident Injures Four

Comments Off

Four men working on a construction site in Las Vegas were injured after falling more than 30 feet and having a structure fall on top of them. The construction accident happened on Monday morning. They were working on the site of the future Fontainebleau resort and casino.

Four workers were hurt in the accident. The four were working atop a rebar frame. The frame gave way and the workers tumbled roughly 30 feet and the frame collapsed on top of them. A crane was used to remove the frame and the four were taken to the hospital for treatment.

All four men are at the hospital in stable condition with possible injuries to their backs and ribs. There is a report that one of the workers may have a neck injury. The accident will be investigated by OSHA. It is unknown what caused the frame to collapse.
