Still Waters

Recommended Posts

Posted (IP: Staff) ·

Eight-year-old Joe, who lives in the city of Oldenburg in northwest Germany, disappeared on 17 June from his front garden, sparking a huge police search.

A passer-by heard a soft whimper coming from the direction of a manhole cover in the early hours and called emergency services.

Rescuers rushed to the scene around 200m from his home and found Joe at the bottom of the sewer.

The child was taken to hospital suffering from hypothermia, but had no major injuries.

Who says, there's no water and no food in a sewer?

Under the right conditions you can go a week or more without water and since he was underground body water loss may have been at a minimum. Food is also conditional, but 8 days isn't really enough to die of starvation.
