A 21-year-old worker was killed in a fall from a Pasadena water tower Wednesday, and police identified him Friday.

Chad Louis Weller of Stevensville fell 180 feet from the tower in the 3700 block of Mountain Road at around 2:30 p.m., according to the Anne Arundel County Fire Department. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Weller, an employee of a private contracting company, was working on communications equipment on the top of the tower when he fell, according to a release from the fire department.
