JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -
A 46-year-old Jackson woman got stuck in a sewer Wednesday morning, trying to get a cell phone back that she had accidentally dropped into the sewer.
It happened at the corner of Watson and Piney Woods Streets, just off of Martin Luther King Drive. Lori McElroy of 1312 Piney Woods Street was talking on a cell phone, when she accidentally dropped the phone into a sewer. She went down into the sewer to get the phone back and got stuck.
The fire department was called and had to use the jaws of life to get her out. She was not hurt.
"I was on the phone talking with somebody and then I dropped the phone in the sewer" said McElroy. "There wasn't no water in it, so I figured I could go down there and get it. Then I got stuck and couldn't get out."
"The man got the top out and they still couldn't get me out" McElroy added. "And then they had to call the fire department and the ambulance. I feel wonderful that I am out, but it was a stupid mistake. It's better to just go buy another phone instead of having to go through that."
McElroy says she doesn't want the same thing to happen to someone else.
