DRAIN RESCUE DRAMA
A WOMAN and her baby have been rescued after falling more than 6m down a storm drain and remaining underground for more than 30 minutes.
The woman was walking through a carpark carrying her baby when the storm grate she went across collapsed, police in Tennessee said.
A passer-by heard the baby crying but could not see the child and called emergency services, officers said.
A helicopter took the woman to hospital but she was conscious and had no visible signs of serious injury.
An ambulance transported the baby, who had a cut but did not appear to have life-threatening injuries.
The drain’s basin was dry and police are not sure why the grate gave way.
On the spot: Rescue workers with a woman after pulling her and her baby from a drain.
