A 21-year-old Virginia man is hospitalized in fair condition after falling 110 feet from an East Texas water tower.
A Kaufman County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman says Brandon Milley of Hampton, Va., fell Sunday morning while painting the North Kaufman Water Supply tower.
Spokeswoman Pat Laney tells The Dallas Morning News that Milley employed by Worldwide Industrial Corp. of Butler, Pa., which has the tower maintenance contract. She also says he was wearing a safety rig when the fall happened and an investigation continues into just how it happened.
Laney says Milley was airlifted to Parkland Memorial Hospital after the 9:21 a.m. Sunday accident in critical condition and saw his condition improve by Monday.
