Missouri man survives mile trip through sewer


RAYMORE, Mo. (WKOW) -- Authorities say a Missouri worker was swept into a 27-inch sewage system pipe and pushed for more than a mile before his cries were heard and he was rescued.

Daniel Collins, from Collins, Missouri, was listed in critical condition Tuesday night.

Fire officials say Collins was being treated for hypothermia and given antibiotics because he may have swallowed sewage.

Collins disappeared shortly after 8 a.m. Tuesday after descending into the sewage system in the town of Raymore.

Adams says crews frantically searched manholes along a 1.5-mile route until a firefighter heard Collins calls about 90 minutes after he disappeared.

He had traveled over a mile.
