DIKE, Iowa (AP) — A Nebraska man has been injured in a fall from a cellphone tower he was helping erect in Iowa.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier says the accident occurred a little after noon on Wednesday at a site west of Dike.

The Grundy County Sheriff's Office says 29-year-old Todd Hansel, of Sidney, Neb., was adjusting a ladder between 40 and 60 feet above the ground "when the ladder gave way and pulled Hansel off the tower."

The office says Hansel was taken to Covenant Medical Center in Waterloo for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
