A water tower rescue happened Monday night in Franklin County; a man was trapped inside the tower in Meadville for about 3 hours. 

Franklin County Deputy Sheriff Roger Causey says the unidentified man was working with a sand blasting crew. Causey tells us the tower is about 120 feet tall.          

The man fell and has a possible back injury. There was no water inside. A team had to go through the top of the tower to reach the man.           

He was brought down around 7:50 Monday night and taken to a hospital.
