Man trapped in septic tank for hours before being rescued
UNION, Mich. - A Cass County man is recovering from bumps and bruises after he fell into a septic tank. It happened on Wednesday near Shavehead Lake at a lakeside home on North Drive.
The 60-year-old contractor was installing a new sewer system at a vacation home off North Drive Wednesday afternoon. “He happened to step on one part of it and went through the top,” said Jerry Myers, a Porter Township fire firefighter. The septic tank was in the ground right next to the sewer system.
