(Newser) – A teenage worker hauling garbage out the back of a New York doughnut shop tumbled into an open sewage pit and died yesterday. Amiri Zeqiri, 17, slipped into the cesspool in Smithtown, some 40 miles east of Manhattan. A cousin spotted him, but by the time he returned with help, the teen was unresponsive and was declared dead a short time later.
