Brooklyn Boy Falls Into Open Manhole


A 10-year-old kid plunged about twenty feet down into a sewer this morning, thanks to an uncovered manhole in Borough Park. Luckily, two Verizon workers driving by noticed his fall and dropped their ladder into the manhole; the kid escaped with just a bruised leg. Shaken but in stable condition, the child was taken to a local hospital, where he can hopefully take a shower.
