A thief in Colombia tries to steal a sewer cover but something goes wrongNov 242020
In a video, captured by a security camera, it is seen how the criminal falls into the hole that he himself had created.
A video that captured the moment in which a man tries to steal the cover of a sewer in Colombia and ends up falling into the hole that it leaves was turned this weekend.
In the images, recorded in the city of Medellín, the alleged thief is seen lifting the heavy lid with difficulty, trying to carry it on his shoulder. Due to the weight of this, the man loses his stability and takes a false step back with one of his feet and falls with a crash through the hole that he himself had created.
In his fall, the individual supports the entire weight of the lid on his body, but despite this he manages to support himself with the other leg, thus avoiding falling completely into the aqueduct system.
Upon getting up, the man can be seen trudging around and looking somewhat dazed. The theft of sewer covers to later be sold as scrap metal is a practice that has been reported in various cities of the South American country.
