LAS VEGAS (AP) — A sign company says one of its workers is in critical condition at a Las Vegas hospital after surviving a 130-foot fall at the MGM Grand casino marquee.

Officials with Young Electric Sign Company identified the victim in the Wednesday morning fall as Charles Schueler, who has worked with the company for six years.

Authorities say the accident happened a little before 10 a.m. while Schueler was working to upgrade the large casino sign. The sign company says his fall was broken in part by trees and landscaping.

Schueler was taken to University Medical Center, and company officials say his family was by his side Wednesday.

Police say the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will be responsible for investigating the incident.
