Trespasser Gets Stuck in Pipe at NJ Water Plant

We're guessing this guy learned his lesson: Rescuers today freed a trespasser stuck in a pipe at a New Jersey water-treatment plant. United Water spokesman Rich Henning says the man broke into the plant that treats and pumps water for the township of Manalapan. Workers heard cries for help coming from a pipe around 7am. Manalapan Mayor Jordan Maskowitz told reporters that sections of the pipe were removed and heat was pumped in. The man was taken away by an ambulance and his condition is not known. Henning says the outflow pipe is used for cleaning a storage facility and is no more than 24 inches wide. He says there's no problem with the water quality. (More strange stuff stories.)
