Campbell Co., VA - A man was killed instantly after falling more than 80 feet to his death Wednesday.

He was working inside a water tower in Campbell County. Witnesses say he was using safety equipment, but that something went wrong.

Campbell County deputies say he was taken directly to the medical examiner's office.

The county's utilities and service authority is in charge of maintaining the tower and say the worker was privately contracted painting the tower on and off since October.

According to witnesses, he worked with his family. His father and cousin were painting with him at the time of his death.
