Waterloo, Iowa maintenance worker falls into water tank
Posted on May 07, 2009
We have previously reported on a maintenance worker falling from a water tower into the tower itself. Today we report on another incident in Waterloo, Iowa where the same thing occurred. This time it took an hour to rescue the man. The maintenance worker was sandblasting the inside of the water tower. His name or condition or injuries were not released. The man fell 30 feet so that would require a fall protection plan and harness.
