Iowa man rescued after fall inside a water tower

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- A central Iowa man is recovering from a fall Wednesday morning inside a water tower.

Dallas Center firefighters rescued the man after he fell off a ladder about 15 feet in the water tower on Tuesday.

Rescuers used a crane and ropes to get the man. They say narrow opening at the top of the water tower was the only access point to reach him.

Authorities say the man was taken to Methodist Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
