LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police say a construction worker working on a patio at a Las Vegas home has died after a structure collapsed on him.

Clark County firefighters used tools to lift more of the wreckage but pronounced him dead.

Holmes says the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will look into what caused the structure to fall.
