A construction worker who fell more than 15 feet onto a concrete floor last week died in a Kansas City, Kan., hospital Wednesday.

Shawn L. Houk, Belvue, was flown by helicopter to the Kansas University Medical Center after the Friday afternoon accident.

Douglas County Sheriff's deputies said Houk suffered head, neck and back injuries in the fall, and he had remained in critical condition at the hospital until his death, about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday. Houk was working on a new building at 1845 East 1450 Rd.
