    Girl Survives Trip Through Sewer During Flash Flood

    An 11 y/o girl survived going through roughly 3 blocks of sewer system in Chartion and survived! The town had about 3 1/2 inches of rain in a half hour. One lucky girl!

    WHOtv had an excellent story on it too but isn't directly linkable. Click WHOtv.com - Des Moines News: daily news, local news and tv news for Central Iowa - WHO. It's titled "Swept Away" in their local news video player.

    Simply Amazing.

    Through 500 yards of ****-smelling foulness I can't even imagine. Or maybe I just don't want to.
