DELRAY BEACH, Fla. – A South Florida woman is recovering in the hospital after she was found naked and stuck in a storm drain, WPLG-TV reported.
That woman was reported missing nearly three weeks ago from a different county.
“This was by far one of the most bizarre incidents that our officers have responded to,” said Delray Beach police spokesman Ted White.
Images show Delray Beach police and firefighters surrounding a storm drain near the intersection of Atlantic Boulevard and Southwest 11th Avenue early Tuesday after someone heard what sounded like a woman’s voice down below.
“A passerby heard something coming from the storm drain,” said Dani Moschella, of Delray Beach Fire Rescue. “She heard a woman yelling.”
When first responders arrived, they discovered a woman trapped 8 feet below the road.
“They did in fact, to their surprise, find a woman stuck in that storm drain,” Moschella said.
