Car Hits Head of Drunk Man Who Lifted Manhole Cover in Sacramento Street
2 Arrested, One Rescued From Sacramento Storm Drain
SACRAMENTO, Ca. Three people may have watched a few too many movies about sewer-dwelling Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as kids. One of the three had to be rescued from Sacramento's sewer system overnight.
Sacramento police say a 26-year-old man whose identity has not been released,19-year-old Rhea Schroeder, his girlfriend and his 24-year-old brother Jacob Reinitz, had been drinking early Tuesday and decided to climb into the underground tunnels near Florin Road around 1:00 this morning.
The three walked about 200 yards in the drain and then tried to surface. When the older brother was lifting a manhole cover in the middle of a street, his head was struck by a passing car.
Firefighters climbed down into the sewer to attend to the injured man and strap him
