A maintenance worker was injured while trying to clean up water that spewed out of a ruptured pipe at a Klein ISD school.

A large heating venting and AC pipe burst on Wednesday morning and flooded the floor of the gym at Klein Collins High School in Spring. The incident also caused the ceiling to start caving in.

A maintenance worker then slipped and fell while cleaning up the mess in the gym. His injuries were severe enough to warrant stitches.
