BRAINTREE, Mass. (WPRI/AP) — Firefighters rushed to a city water tank in Braintree Thursday morning after two workers fell and became trapped inside.
The workers, a father and son, had been inspecting the tank. Rescue crews were able to pull the son out of the tank, but could not reach the father.
Authorities were starting to drain the one-million-gallon tank Thursday afternoon to recover the father’s body.
The son was taken to a hospital for treatment.
It’s not clear how the men fell inside or became trapped.
