NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Firefighters rescued a Nashville man who was stuck in a storm drain for four days.

The man told rescue workers he spent four days trapped in the tiny space before someone heading to a swim meet heard his calls for help.

After about an hour of drilling, firefighters used a sledgehammer to bust open a 5-foot section of drain pipe to free the man.

Investigators have not said how the man ended up in the storm drain.
