Man being rescued from a cess pit on Long Island:

http://www.myfoxny.com/dpp/news/loca...208-cesspool-rescue-on-long-island

I did a search in this forum and did not see a thread started on this topic. I can not see the pictures all that well on this computer and FNC has not said anything more than Fox Five. Did this community ask for help from FDNY? They are not that far from the city and I am sure they could get one of thier rescues out there pretty quickly. I hope they get this guy out of this hole, it has to be really cold down there.

Good luck,

David

I hope everything works out as well, but I have to admit the first thing I thought was that you were posting a thread about someone who was held hostage in a club by hundreds of Long Island douchebags like this:

Oh that SUCKS. He is going to be a very sick man for a few weeks.

I've never cared for a cesspool patient, but when you pull someone out of a cesspool, they've ingested pretty much every nasty bug in the book, and probably a lot that aren't in the book. You put them on antibiotics to kill pretty much everything you can think of. And there's nothing you can do about the viruses. On top of the dysentery, they can also get horrible pneumonia from getting stool into their lungs, which can land them on a ventilator in the ICU.

And then, from all the antibiotics, the gut takes weeks to recover its normal flora. There's risk of all sorts of bacterial overgrowth illnesses, etc. Nasty, nasty, nasty stuff.

I hope they get him out and to a hospital quickly.

They have been running that story all day in local news.


Sadly, this is the 4th time I have heard of this happeneing on Long Island in the last...4 years.

-another time it was an elderly woman that fell in and died.

- another time, a landscaper was mowing the lawn on the ride-on mower when he and the mower went,......all in, so to speak. He doed as well.

-And I think one time was a child.


Most, if not all of these are due to the blocl on block cesspool construction used years ago.

I have a cesspool where I live now and it scary to think a death trap is pretty much sitting there.

The article claims the pit was empty, so perhaps it won't be quite as bacteria riddled as it could be...

Wow. Incredible that this happened 4 times in as many years! At least this time the pit was empty.

Long Island is more of a black hole.


You try to leave but most get sucked back in.

That pic looks more like the people I see when I am in CA. You have some balls making fun of any geographical area coming from that sorry state.

Glad they got him out safe. I heard they told him if he kept digging south he would end up in California and he went nuts to get out.

Thanks Cadet. I would have loved to watch some more of that rescue operations. They are the best at that job.

I was born in NYC, lived in upstate and Astoria in Queens for about 3.5 years and visit all the time, but most of my life I've lived out here (so I'm aware of both worlds) and trust me... I am VERY aware of the douchebaggery that exists out here in CA. It's a different variety than out on the east coast, but the same species.

And don't worry, I'm not extraordinarily proud of living in CA. I gotta work with it though...

Gotta see that ...Jersey Shore TV show. Unreal.


As far as I heard on TV, the man was rescued and doing well.
