September 11, 2009

A Hagerstown, Maryland fire official says a worker was injured when he fell about 17 feet into an empty tank under construction at the city’s wastewater treatment plant.

Hagerstown Fire Department Battalion 2 Chief Randy Myers said the man apparently fell off a ledge inside the tank around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Myers says the worker helping to build the concrete tank that will be used to treat sewage appeared to have arm and shoulder injuries and was taken to Washington County Hospital.
