HOUSTON – A woman fell down a manhole in the Klein area and was trapped for several days, according to Harris County Precinct 4 Constable’s Office.
Deputies rescued the woman from the manhole in the 7200 block of North Grand Parkway.
Authorities say she is being checked by medics.
Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman said the storm sewer the manhole is over leads to a nearby retention pond, and last week workers heard a woman yelling for help, but couldn’t figure where it was coming from. They heard her again Tuesday and found the yelling coming from the manhole. They believe the woman, who is known to police, may have been living in the storm sewer. She entered the storm sewer system from the retention pond. Authorities say they believe she became disoriented and that is when she called for help.
