According to the New York Fire Department, five Staten Island boys got trapped in a sewer early this week and had to be rescued
by authorities. Like something out of 'Stand By Me', the boys walked into a tunnel that led to the sewers under Cloves Lake Park.
During the 911 call which has now been released, we learn that the boys had ditched their backpacks at the entrance to the tunnel and began exploring. When they reached the sewer, they made it nearly a quarter of a mile further before realizing they were trapped.
With only one cellphone at their disposal, the boys made the right move in calling for help. Authorities were able to navigate their trail above ground and reached a manhole where the boys were rescued after about an hour in the sewer. Nobody was seriously injured.
