A construction worker was hospitalized Tuesday morning after falling down an elevator shaft at the Wynn Boston Harbor Casino in Everett, Massachusetts.
A spokesperson for the massive construction project said the worker somehow fell down a shaft at about 7:15 a.m., shortly after his shift began.
The worker, who has not been identified, was conscious and alert when he was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital for treatment. His exact condition is unclear.

It's unknown which contracting company the man works for, according to the spokesperson.
The $2.4 billion Wynn Boston Harbor casino project is on track to be finished by June 2019. It is the largest single-phase private development in the history of Massachusetts.
With 2 million workforce hours on the site so far and more than 1,000 construction workers on the site per day, the Wynn spokesperson said the incident is the first significant one.
