Teen who fell into sewage pipe rescued after frantic search

Teen who fell into sewage pipe rescued after frantic search”

When speaking about the rescuers going into the drainage area themselves, a Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman said that it is risky for anyone to enter the area because of the hazardous environment.

Firefighters gave him a cellphone so he could reassure his family, and paramedics took the teen to a hospital for decontamination and medical aid, Scott said.

The pipe in question feeds down to the L.A. River, Stewart said.

Rescuers searched for Hernandez for more than 12 hours, eventually discovering him about a mile east where he was reported missing.

America's immigration courts need serious fixing, starting with more judges and, more importantly, judicial independence, Oliver said, noting that these courts are part of the Justice Department, not the judiciary.

The boy was immediately given a mobile phone to call his family to tell them he was safe, officials said, adding that at least 20 of his family members were present for search efforts on Sunday night. The drainage ditch is about 13 feet wide and two feet deep, with swift moving water.

It was an emotional moment for the sanitation department supervisor who told the story of how his team found 13 year-old Jesse Hernandez alive.

LAFD Captain Erik Scott said it was a "miracle" Hernandez was found after being trapped in an "intricate, enclosed" sewage pipe system overnight.

We're so happy to state the Jesse Hernandez was found alive and talking this morning.

Jesse was playing with relatives in the maintenance building when he jumped on a wooden plank and fell 25 feet into the pipe system.

The pipes are filled with 2 feet or more of liquid that moves at 15 miles per hour, the fire department said.

Cameras used to inspect pipes for fix were employed as part of the rescue effort, the fire department said. Officials confirmed they are tracking all the pipes to find the kid.

According to a report in the Los Angeles Times, the rescuers studied maps of the hundreds of feet of closed sewage pipe system and also sent a camera attached to a floatation device, 300 feet down a pipe. The city's crisis response team and the fire department thanked all of the people involved in the rescue, which apparently wouldn't have been successful without the teamwork among the different agencies.
