Man stuck in storm drain rescued after 4 days
NASHVILLE, TN - A man has been rescued after getting stuck for four days in a Nashville storm drain.
Media outlets report firefighters dug into the ground and broke into a concrete pipe to free the unidentified man Sunday.
Firefighters were called to the scene after another man heard the victim calling for help.
It wasn't immediately clear how the man got into the drain, but an assistant chief with the Nashville Fire Department says he had crawled in somewhere along Charlotte Avenue last Thursday.
The man got stuck in a bend in the narrow drain pipe, which ran next to the Centennial Sportsplex's tennis courts.
He suffered cuts to his body and appeared dehydrated. Once freed, he was immediately given oxygen and taken to a nearby hospital for evaluation and treatment.
