WEST OCEAN CITY, Md.- A worker was injured Tuesday morning after he fell into a drainage tank at Worcester County's Mystic Harbour Wastewater Treatment plant in West Ocean City.

A spokesperson with the Worcester County Sheriff's Office said the incident happened at around 8 a.m. Workers at the plant told WBOC that the victim fell more than 13 feet in the tank, which was empty. The workers also said the victim should have been wearing a harness, but his colleagues said he was not.
