Recalling the horrific moment, she told Sky News: “My first thought was ‘oh my God, he’s dead. I yanked the drain lid out, and I just saw him down there, screaming my name. There was sewage up to his knees. I jumped down the drain, but it’s not big enough for me to bend over to grab him. I had to sort of arch my body to grab him and pull him up.
