REDFIELD, AR - A 2,000-foot television tower collapsed today while workers were restricting guy wires, knocking a popular Little Rock television station off the air.
KATV news director Randy Dixon said one person suffered a minor injury when the tower collapsed in a field about 20 miles south of Little Rock. The station was working to establish a feed to restore its signal to the portion of its audience that obtains programming by satellite.
"We're off the air. It's a heckuva' mess," Dixon said.
