A sign company worker who fell nearly 150 feet from the MGM Grand marquee on the Las Vegas Strip was in serious but stable condition this morning, a company executive said.
Charles Schueler, a six-year employee of Young Electric Sign Co., fell about 9:40 a.m. Wednesday from the marquee of the MGM Grand onto some trees and landscaping, YESCO Executive Vice President Paul Young said.
“His family is with him while doctors continue their evaluation of his condition,” Young said. “The family expresses their thanks to everyone who has kept Charles in their prayers.”
Schueler was transported to University Medical Center after the fall, Metro Police spokesman Larry Hadfield said.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will investigate the incident, Hadfield said. Young said that YESCO would cooperate with the investigation.
