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.

Multiple units from the Ocean City Volunteer Fire Company responded to the scene. The victim, who according to county officials was an employee of Bearing Construction Company, was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury. The incident remains under investigation.
