A naked woman was rescued from a Florida storm sewer after a passerby found her trapped inside – with her legs tied together, new reports show.
A man was leaving India’s Grill on South Cleveland Avenue in Fort Myers shortly after 2:30 p.m. when he heard a deep voice calling for help and spotted the naked woman inexplicably sitting at the bottom of the drain, NBC 2 reported.
Her legs were tied together with straps, according to the report.
Firefighters removed a heavy metal grid covering the drain and lifted her up before treating her on the spot, the outlet reported.
She did not cooperate and did not want to disclose any further information to the authorities.
Police confirmed she was a passing person who stayed at a nearby Travelodge motel last month – but staff did not recognize her photo, according to the local report.
How the woman ended up in the sewers remains a mystery.
“Someone doesn’t just hook up and climb in there,” eyewitness Tim Brown, who also stays at the Travelodge Motel, told the outlet.
“I just told my girlfriend, she doesn’t go through it on her own anymore,” he added. “So yeah, it’s scary. It is very scary.
