    A 56-year-old construction worker at the Wynn Boston Harbor casino in Everett has died from injuries sustained in an incident that happened on Tuesday, according to a company spokesperson.

    "The Wynn Boston Harbor family regretfully learned this morning that a member of our construction team lost his life after sustaining injuries on our site yesterday," Wynn spokesperson Greg John said in a statement.

    The Middlesex District Attorney's Office said the Everett Fire Department responded to a report of an unresponsive male around 3 p.m. Tuesday. 

    Preliminary investigation shows that the victim was operating an excavator at the south end of the construction site, taking apart a trench box, when the incident occurred.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    The victim reportedly regained consciousness at the scene but later succumbed to his injuries at Massachusetts General Hospital. The worker's name has not been released.

    John said Wynn Boston Harbor is launching its own investigation into the circumstances of the worker's death. The district attorney, Everett police and the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration are also investigating.

    "This is a very sad day for everyone at Wynn Boston Harbor. Our deepest condolences and heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to his family and coworkers," John said.

    The $2.4-billion waterfront casino is scheduled to open in the summer of 2019. Wynn Resorts has said it is considering renaming the resort as founder Steve Wynn faces allegations of sexual misconduct.
