Worker dies on Irondale water tower

Posted: Updated:

A worker from Texas died while working on an Irondale water tower this weekend.

According to the Jefferson County Coroner's Office, the victim was identified as Mike Isaac Alvarenga Carlos of Hockley, Texas, and originally from El Salvador.

Carlos was climbing a dry access pipe -- which has a ladder inside it -- which allows workers to climb to the top of the water tower. Carlos apparently fell off of this ladder, but never made it inside the water tank.
