2 people rescued from storm drain in Tucson

TUCSON, Ariz. — Fire crews rescued two people who were trapped inside a
storm drain in Tucson.

The Arizona Daily Star
reports that the man and woman, both
of whom are in their 30s, entered the storm drain Saturday from the nearby
Rillito River, became disoriented and couldn’t get out.

Rescuers had to use a saw to cut a metal security bar on a gate blocking the
storm drain.

The two were in the drain for about eight hours.

Both were taken to a hospital after they showed signs of heat-related illness.
