Man found trapped in in­ter­state drain

The Denver Post - - DENVER & THE WEST - By Kieran Ni­chol­son

Den­ver fire­fight­ers re­sponded to an un­usual call Fri­day night. A man was trapped in a storm drain un­der north­bound lanes of In­ter­state 25.

Fire­fight­ers were able to pull up the grate and safely re­move the man.

Slow rush hour traf­fic and an alert driver helped lead to the res­cue, said Capt. Greg Pix­ley, a Den­ver Fire Depart­ment spokesman. A driver, go­ing at a low speed in heavy traf­fic, with his win­dow down, heard cries for “help,” Pix­ley said. The driver was try­ing to de­ter­mine where the cries were com­ing from when he spot­ted fin­gers wig­gling through grates of a storm drain.
