Medford Man Saved from Storm Drain
A 25-year-old man who slipped and fell into a storm drain while reaching for a cell phone he dropped down there in his hometown of Medford has been rescued.
Suffolk County police said the victim called 911 from a second cell phone he had on him after he became trapped in the holding tank of the drain on Route 112 near Granny Road at 6:40 p.m. Monday.
Emergency Service Section officers used a reciprocating saw and a ladder to free the man, who was not injured.
