Window washer dies after fall from Trump Tower

U.S. & World

LAS VEGAS, NV (KSNV) A window washer has died after apparently falling at Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada Wednesday. 

A witness who called 911 said there were two window washers repelled on ropes, when a wind gust started hitting the building.

The wind started swaying one of the washers back and forth, causing him to hit the building forcefully.

On the third hit, the witness said, the washer fell head first onto the pool deck. Witnesses said he was roughly five stories above the deck. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

“It’s tragic. I think the window washers are all over the place. It’s a dangerous job,” one guest, Kendra Diaz, said,
