Missing boy who fell into Los Angeles sewer found alive”

Firefighter-paramedics attended to Jesse before he was transported to a hospital for treatment and decontamination.

Rescuers finally found Jesse after seeing images of handprints on a sewer.

A child who had been missing for at least half a day after falling into a unsafe part of the Los Angeles drainage system was found alive early Monday morning, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

Jesse Hernandez who apparently fell into a drainage pipe was found alive today in Los Angeles, Calif. April 2, 2018.

"It appears he was trying to get out", said LA Sanitation Department Assistant Director Adel Hagekhalil.

Iowa family dead in Mexican condo: Vacationers' cause of death released
On Monday morning, the family was working on finalizing funeral arrangements and returning the bodies of the Sharp family to Iowa. The condo was rented through Vacation Rentals By Owner, or VRBO, according to HomeAway, the parent company of VRBO.

"I've never seen a command post of big burly guys so filled with joy", department spokesman Erik Scott said.

"They ... broke that maintenance hole loose, opened it, and the first thing they heard is 'help, ' " the official said.

Jesse immediately asked for a phone to call his family. The drainage pipe is about 4 feet wide and is part of an enclosed sewage system, which provided search-and-rescue teams with few available access points.

The mayor's crisis response team had been at the command post overnight and thanked the Hernandez family for its support, patience and optimism.

The Los Angeles Fire Department did not respond to Newsweek's request for further comment in time for publication. Jesse then fell after a wooden plank he was standing on gave way.

But she adds that there's still "much more that needs to be done" to ensure the safety and security of Jewish people. According to Paris prosecutors, the victim, Mireille Knoll , suffered from severe arthritis and could hardly move.

"It's sad that this happens to him because he just came to the park to have fun", he said.

Officials studied maps of the closed sewage pipe system, which stretches hundreds of feet, and sent a camera attached to a flotation device 300 feet (91 meters) down a pipe.

The pipes, which run parallel the Los Angeles River and cross under freeways, are 4 feet in diameter, the fire department said. The cameras "have more advanced capabilities including lighting and the ability to attach to a pontoon which will crawl along the pipe".

According to the LAFD, the pipes are four feet in diameter, and are filled with liquid at varying depth of two feet and deeper, sometimes moving at 15 miles per hour.

The fire department noted the "excellent teamwork" among agencies - which include fire and its urban search and rescue, police, highway patrol, city recreation and parks, park rangers, the water and power department, and experts from the sanitation, engineering and contract administration bureaus.
