Man Trapped Upside Down in Drain Hunting for Keys

Berlin police said on Wednesday they had rescued a motorist who ended up wedged upside down in a drain after trying to retrieve car keys he had dropped.

The 48-year-old man was seen by a bystander falling into the street drain late on Tuesday after he removed the manhole cover. Police were at first unable to find the man but later discovered him wedged in a drainage pipe below ground.

Several police officers were needed to pull him out. He was at first unconscious and did not appear to be breathing. After police hit him on the back he began coughing up water and breathing again. Police said the car keys were not found.
