Woman suffers minor injuries after falling through a manhole
ROY, Utah — A woman suffered minor injuries after falling through a manhole Friday after noon, Roy police say.
According to police, the incident occurred at 6050 South 1900 West in Roy. Police also say that the woman stepped on a manhole cover that they believe wasn’t placed and secured properly. Once the woman stepped on the cover, she went through the manhole, and her leg was trapped.
A 2-inch water pipe was broken as a result of the woman falling through the manhole.
Police say getting the woman out was complicated by rushing water that was coming out of the hole.
As a result, the city had to shut the water off and drain the hole to allow emergency personnel to get the woman out.
According to police, she was taken safely out of the hole, and transported to the hospital for minor injuries.
Fire crews from Weber, Ogden and Roy assisted in the rescue of the woman.
