Look Out Below! Man’s Leg Gets Stuck In Manhole

You may want to watch where you walk after reading this.

In Crystal City this afternoon, a man partially fell into a small utility manhole on the edge of the sidewalk after the plastic manhole cover collapsed.

It happened near the intersection of Crystal Drive and 18th Street.

One of the man’s legs fell about knee-high into the three-foot deep hole. He suffered scratches and some public embarrassment, but was otherwise unhurt.

Police and a public works crew arrived on scene, took some photos, and coned off the broken manhole cover.

The manhole belongs to a private utility company, according to the county Department of Environmental Services. It’s unclear at this time exactly which utility it belongs to.
