An Ohio teen riding his bike near a storm drain in Cleveland went for the ride of his life when he was sucked into a fast moving current which lead him down into a storm drain. The boy was sucked into the 2 feet in diameter pipe and released after a quarter mile adventure ride.
The boy whose name is Jeffrey said he held his breath for what felt like two minutes, as his body flipped around in the pipe.
“I was face first, then I was feet first, and then I was side first,” he said.
Jeffrey traveled for about 1500 feet but when asked about how far he thought he had traveled he said he thought he only went 20 feet.
The drain released him into a the city sewer where it took rescue crews 45 minutes to rescue the boy. He suffered minor injuries and need six stitches on his elbow.
