Workers Rescue Man from Cesspool on Long Island Man Fell Into Drainage Pit

Emergency crews pulled a worker to safety after he fell into an empty 18-foot cesspool hole in East Hills, Long Island. Mario Flores, 37, was stuck in the hole for more than 4 hours. A second man who was trying to help the first also got trapped, but was quickly rescued.

Dozens of firefighters worked to shore up the hole and rig a pulley to save Flores. He was conscious and alert when he came out of the hole. Responders loaded him into an ambulance at about 3:50 p.m. and took him to a local hospital.

Officials said he was listed in stable condition and was evaluayed for possible hypothermia and containment disease.

I saw this yesterday on Fox News. I like that Harris Faulkner is part of the News Desk program in the afternoon. She is almost like a sports play by play gal and gets emotional and excited during her bits.
