A Guy Dropped $20 in a Storm Drain, Climbed Down a Manhole to Get It . . . And Got Stuck for Two Days
A guy was walking down the street in Lawton, Oklahoma last week, and accidentally dropped a $20 bill in a storm drain. (His name hasn't been released. Lawton's about 100 miles southwest of Oklahoma City.)
So he decided to climb down a MANHOLE to get it. But it was basically pitch black once he got down there, so he got turned around right away . . . then couldn't find his way OUT.
It's not clear exactly how long he was down there, because he completely lost track of time. But eventually a group of kids who were walking home from school heard him yelling for help, and called 911.
When police got there, they opened a manhole, found him in a pipe about 15 feet down, and had to drop a ladder to him. And judging from how dirty and dehydrated he was . . . they estimated he was down there for TWO FULL DAYS.
He was treated for a few minor injuries, including a bump on his head that he got while crawling around in the dark. According to police, the kids who called 911 may have saved his LIFE.
And after all that . . . he didn't even find the $20 he dropped. (KSWO)
