AUSTIN (KXAN) — A construction worker died after falling into a manhole leading to a sewer line in northeast Austin Tuesday, according to the Austin Police Department.

Austin-Travis County EMS, Austin firefighters and police responded near the area of McCallen Pass and East Parmer Lane around 2:37 p.m.

Initial reports were that an adult fell into a manhole with moving water and disappeared from the sight of witnesses, according to a tweet from ATCEMS.

Rescuers were in “search mode,” trying to find the person with visual searches. They were also using waterway maps to help with the search, in case the person was swept downstream, ATCEMS said.

Around 6:45 p.m., Austin police said they received word a person was found at the Walnut Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant. He was pronounced dead on scene.

Austin police confirmed it was a male victim, and they’re still working on notifying the family.

The area where the worker disappeared and where he was found is more than 11 miles apart by road. It would be an approximately 14-minute car ride.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will be investigating, APD said.
