Final Destination: Death By Park Slope Manhole

Don’t you hate it when you’re wandering down the street minding your own business after a local flood, and then suddenly you fall in a manhole and almost DIE? Because that’s exactly what happened to Park Slope’s very own Elaine Ciccone, who fell into local manhole after its cover floated off during a recent rain storm.

"What's haunting me is the fact that had I had my seven-year-old granddaughter with me, she could have gone down and I don't know that I could have held her," Ciccone told NY1.

Personally, I fall into manholes all the time (IN THE BEDROOM, lolz), and I can tell you that it’s scary as fuck. So, how likely is it that next time you’re walking to the subway you’ll fall into a pit of despair and break both your legs? Very.

A spokesperson from the Department of Environmental Protection told NY1 that manhole covers often come off during floods to release water, and the city has no plans to fasten those bad boys down. Homeboy’s solution? Man up and deal with it, motherfuckers.   

Thanks for having Park Slope’s back, New York!

Solution??? DON'T GO WALKING AROUND WITH A SEVEN YEAR OLD IMMEDIATELY AFTER A HURRICAINE!! Anybody using their head knows there are seen and unseen hazards around in a situation like that.
