Worker Holds Tight as Tower Falls Over

CORPUS CHRISTI - A contractor working on a communications tower at the airport got quite a ride when the 30 foot tall structure came down this morning.

Coworkers rushed to get the man free of the wrecked tower. He suffered cut the head and a knee injury, otherwise he was okay. Fire crews were talking to him as he sat down recovering from the scare.

The towers belong to the Federal Aviation Administration.
