Most Bizarre Discoveries Made In Sewers!

The sewers are, literally, the detritus of society. Up here, above the surface of the street, we can pretend to lead green, sustainable lifestyles. We can style ourselves as responsible citizens of the earth. Underneath the concrete, however, lies the truth, the ugly, ugly, flowing truth that contains everything we won’t admit to and willfully forget.
Join us on this journey of discovery into the weird, wonderful, terrifying, and often just plain disgusting things that turn up in the world’s sewers.

1. Newborn Baby

Newborn Baby

A newborn baby survived for five days in an Australian storm drain. The little boy was seven days old when he was found at the bottom of a 9-foot pipe that had been covered with a 440-pound concrete slab. The poor little guy was wrapped in a hospital blanket. His survival is pretty amazing, considering that temperatures in the area had hovered over 100 degrees Fahrenheit at the time. The baby was discovered when a man heard what he called strange noises while cycling by the storm drain. He quickly called police once he realized the sound was a baby crying. It took six men to move the concrete slab to get to the little boy, who was taken to hospital in serious condition. Police believe the baby had been pushed through a small opening in the drain. A woman was charged with attempted murder in the incident.

2. Puppies In The Sewer

Puppies In The Sewer

We’re not sure how awful of a person you have to be to put puppies in the sewer, but we may be able to blame this one on overeager, overly curious pups. A police officer in Cocoa, Florida, heard a dog barking one day in 2015 when he was driving along his beat. He didn’t actually see any dogs, however, so he became curious. Following the sound, he ended up at a sewer drain where three pit bull pups were peeking out from under the sewer grate. The cop called animal services, but the fire department eventually had to get involved to move the sewer grate. Police speculate that the trio may have wandered into the sewer themselves, but no one came forward to claim the pups, who were eventually adopted from a shelter.

3. Mass Grave

Mass Grave

Investigators in Dublin, Ireland made a sad and gruesome discovery in February 2017 when they dug into the sewer underneath a building that was once a Catholic orphanage. What they found was a mass grave strewn with the bodies of babies and young children. DNA evidence suggested that the bodies were buried largely during the 1950s, at a time when the government-run home for unwed mothers and their babies is said to have been severely overcrowded and the mortality rate for young children in Ireland high. It was a historian’s efforts to trace what had happened to nearly 800 unaccounted for remains of children who had died at the facility that sparked the government-ordered investigation. The recent efforts come after decades of rumors and suspicion directed at the orphanage.

4. Gator In The Storm Drain

Gator In The Storm Drain

Stories about alligators in the sewers are generally urban legends. But, every once in awhile, reality matches the stories. (We’re pretty sure, however, that the New York City Sewer Gator stories are fictional.) In 2005, a trapper in Ormond Beach, Florida, reported seeing a number of young alligators using the sewer system to navigate around the city. Back in 2006, kids in Fort Bend County, Texas, were playing a game of Little League baseball when an 11-foot gator emerged from the bushes to sun itself in front of the bleachers. Frantic parents called police, who called a local alligator expert. As a mob converged on the reptile, it slid itself into a storm drain. The only problem was, once the 600-pound behemoth got in there, he couldn’t get out. The animal charged at the would-be rescuer and ended up shot in the head for its trouble.

5. Missing Cow Found

Missing Cow Found

A cow went missing in Fujian province in eastern China in 2010, and its owner searched for it for days. Around the same time, people in the town started to hear strange mooing noises coming from underground. Eventually, the cow popped her head through an open manhole. People tried to keep the cow calm by feeding her grass while her owner put a rescue operation together that involved a DIY winch. Eventually, the cow was freed, and observers reported that she didn’t seem upset by her underground adventure. The cow apparently found the closest patch of grass and started grazing. No one knows how exactly the cow ended up in the sewer in the first place.
