Two workers in Pretoria were trapped in a raw sewerage drain after they inhaled gas.

Netcare 911’s spokesperson Chris Botha said,” Apparently one worker went into the drain to do some work and was overcome by some gases in the sewer. He’s friend went in to assist him but he also collapsed.”

He said, “Paramedics and firemen had to use special breathing apparatus and ropes to bring the men to the surface.”

One of the men was placed on a ventilator and had to be resuscitated on the scene.

Both men are in a critical but stable condition.
