Local News

A worker who fell into the Paris balloon marquee on the Las Vegas Strip had to be rescued by the Clark County Fire Deparment Thursday.

The fall was reported around 12:42 p.m. The worker fell about 10 feet through an opening in scaffolding. 

“It wasn’t t too challenging of a rescue once we had our game plan but it was a confined area where the gentleman was so it was kind of tough to get to and get our equipment in but once we were able to do that we got him out fairly quickly,” said Capt. Corey Switzer, CCFD.

Traffic was blocked by the firefighters causing some disruption on the Strip.
