Around 6:37 p.m. on Thursday, Clarksville, Tenn., emergency responders were called to a storm drain at a local high school where a passerby reported hearing a baby crying.
The mother and her baby fell 20 feet to the bottom of the dry storm drain.
The emergency responders were able to enter the drain through another entrance and extract the woman and baby around 7:15 p.m.
The woman, whose injuries police said were unknown, was flown to a Nashville hospital for treatment. She was conscious and talking and had no visible signs of serious injury, according to WZTV. Her baby, who is under a year old, appeared to have only a cut and no life-threatening injuries.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the woman and child involved in this accident on the Rossview High campus. We are grateful for the quick actions of the emergency responders and our school administrators and personnel. The district is investigating the cause of the accident. Safety is always our top priority, and while there are things beyond our control, we are committed to doing everything within our power to ensure our campuses are safe.”
