DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – It was the worst Christmas Eve ever.
That’s what Robert Schoff says and you’ll probably agree. The 77-year-old man spent part of Christmas Eve stuck upside down in his septic tank. The Iowa man said he was checking his septic system for a clog and fell in the opening.
His head was stuck inside while his feet were kicking in the air. That’s how his wife found him about an hour later. She called for help and two sheriff’s deputies yanked Schoff out of his stinky predicament.
Schoff says the rescue came just in time, because he couldn’t stand the septic tank much longer.
