Boom lift fall sends Allegiant Stadium worker to hospital

LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — A worker was taken to a hospital after an incident involving a boom lift at Allegiant Stadium Thursday morning.

Eric Grenz, vice president with construction partnership Mortenson McCarthy, said the worker was completing final touch-ups on the stadium exterior.

Photos showed the boom lift lying on the ground after apparently falling over and hitting the pavement.

"The worker was alert and taken to an area hospital for further evaluation," Grenz said in a statement. "We are currently investigating the cause of this incident."

Allegiant received its certificate of completion on July 31, though work still remains to complete the 65,000-seat stadium.

Stadium officials expect to reach project closeout by the end of October. The Las Vegas Raiders' first home game is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 21.
