Boy swept in sewer sticks finger out of manhole and is saved
An 11-year-old boy was swept into a storm drain
while playing in a flooded ditch in Wisconsin.
Emergency crews searched for 45 minutes hoping
to find the boy, fearing to find his body.
By sheer luck, the deputy fire chief saw a finger
poking up through a hole in a manhole cover.
Below the lid, the boy was clinging to a ladder.
He had been swept 30 feet downstream and
popped up in an air pocket.
