Naked woman is rescued from a storm drain in Florida WEEKS after she was reported missing – and cops have no idea how she got there

  • Firefighters pulled the female from below the sidewalk in Delray Beach 
  • The drain is eight feet deep, and cops have no idea how she got inside

  • It’s not clear how long she was trapped, but she told rescuers she was in the drain ‘for a while’ 

A naked woman has been rescued from a storm drain in Florida, weeks after she was reported missing.

Firefighters pulled the unidentified female, believed to be in her 40s, from below the sidewalk in Delray Beach after a pedestrian heard cries for help.

Local authorities said the drain is eight feet deep, and it is unclear how long she was stuck there. 

‘She was lucky,’ Delray Beach Fire Rescue spokeswoman Dani Moschella told the Sun Sentinel

‘I don’t know how much longer she would have been OK down there. The idea that somebody might be down there for any length of time is disturbing. 

‘It’s dirty, dangerous, there’s snakes, rats, garbage, dirt and leaves, anything that’s on the street that washes into a sewer, and it smells terrible.

Pictures released from Delray Beach Fire and Rescue show the woman, mostly covered by white sheets, was dirty, had leaves in her hair and was too weak to stand up.

Images show the firefighters using a ladder and harness to drop down into the drain and retrieve her.  

Cops confirmed that she was reported missing from Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office on March 3.

Officials didn’t know how long she had been in the storm drain, but said it could have been a while. 

Moschella also told the Sentinel she was trying to figure out how she got inside the drain – as the opening is too small for an adult.

Delray Beach Police spokesman Ted White: ‘From the police department standpoint, we don’t believe there was any type of crime committed. 

‘It doesn’t feel like she was taken against her will. It appears this was done by her own free will.

‘She claims that she’s been in the storm drain for a significant amount of time,” White added. ‘The biggest question is how long she has been in there, how did she get in there and why?’

Local authorities said the drain is eight feet deep, and it is unclear how long she was stuck there. Rescuers are seen lowering themselves down to grab her out
