LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A construction worker was killed when a trench collapsed in northwest Las Vegas on Thursday, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration confirmed.

First responders worked for nearly five hours to recover the worker's body at a construction site near Kyle Canyon Road and Oso Blanca Road.

OSHA is investigating the collapse, but a spokesperson for the agency could not share additional details due to confidentiality requirements.

The worker's family is being cared for by the Trauma Intervention Program of Las Vegas, city fire officials said.
