LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities say a construction worker at a southern Las Vegas job site has died following a 20-foot fall.
The Clark County fire department says the worker had been sandblasting pipes in the area.
The worker then returned and fell at least 20 feet down into a hole.
It's unknown why the worker returned to the area.
Las Vegas police and the Nevada Occupational Safety and Health Administration are investigating.
The state investigation could take up to six months.
