WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Wichita officials say a city employee is in critical condition after being injured at the city’s pumping station at Cheney Reservoir.

The 59-year-old man was found unconscious about 2 a.m. Tuesday by another employee who was checking on him.

Public Works director Alan King says it’s possible the man fell between 20 and 30 feet and could have been lying there for hours before he was found.

The incident is under investigation. The man’s name has not been released.

The city is working to repair a leak in the water treatment plant but it’s not clear if the injured person was involved in that project.
