Man Dies After Falling Off Water Tower

Arvada Police say a man is dead after he fell 40 feet from a water tower.

The 45 year old man from Commerce City was working on top of the former Valley Water District tower yesterday, which was set for dismantling.

His name was not released.

Witnesses told officers that the tower shifted and the man fell.

The Arvada Fire Marshall says the tower was knocked down on Wednesday and a tear down was planned.
