Medics transported an injured worker from a Butler County gas drilling site Monday morning.

Officials had few details about the case or the extent of the worker's injuries.

Harmony EMS responded to a call about a worker trapped between water tanks in Lancaster at about 9:40 a.m., director Jay Grinnell said. The worker may have been freed before emergency responders arrived, but Grinnell said he could not yet confirm details of the incident.
