Australian spends 36 hours in drain after dropping phone

March 26, 2024

Australian emergency workers on Tuesday said they rescued a man who was stuck in a Brisbane storm drain for 36 hours after apparently trying to retrieve a dropped mobile phone. After refusing a passerby's initial offer of help on Sunday, he was forced to drink drain water as he looked for a way out. Emergency services were eventually alerted to the scene when a resident heard heavy breathing from the drain around 11 am on Monday. Queensland Fire and Emergency Services told AFP that firefighters arrived and were able to lift the lid of the drain and rescue the man. Emergency services said he was in a stable condition.
