“Confined Space Rescue – 1200 6th St NW – one person stuck in storm drain

Still waiting to hear on how the guy got into the storm drain.

Alley of 1800 block of 6th St, NW

And in what appears to be a completely separate incident, a reader sends in the photo above from the Alley behind Shaw’s Tavern.


MPD tells me that an adult Latino male was struck by a car and dragged. The body was found in an alley at 1800 6th St, NW. The victim has not been identified yet. This is being investigated by MPD’s major crash unit.

  • The guy’s girlfriend threw his car keys down the grate.

  • According to the police officer there was a dead body in the alley way. Crime scene photographers were back there. According to the officer there was a lot of blood and they were trying to determine what happened.

  • Ladies, this is your warning. If you kick your man to the curb, it’s your fault if he falls down the drain.
