Ohio Teen Travels Quarter Of A Mile Through Sewer After Falling Into Drain Pipe

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An overflowing creek in a Cleveland suburb sent a 14-year-old boy on the ride of his life.

Jeffrey LaPorta traveled more than a quarter of a mile Tuesday through multiple storm sewer pipes, at times completely submerged in water, before finding enough breathing room to await rescue. He was eventually pulled out of the sewer in less than an hour, with only scrapes and bruises.

“It was kind of like a waterslide,” Jeffrey said in an interview Friday with The Associated Press. “But like the waterslide was like very, very steep and went about 20 miles an hour.”

[An Official] said the boy traveled about 1,500 feet from where he initially started.

The distance came as a shock to Jeffrey. “I thought I traveled only 20 feet,” he said.
