VENTURA, Calif. -

Ventura City Fire Department rescued a man from a storm drain in the 300 block of S. Laurel.

It happened just after 12 p.m. on Wednesday. For an unknown reason, the man was unable to turn back and exit the drain where he entered.

Rescue crews used the Jaws of Life to lift the metal bar blocking the drain exit.

The man was treated for weakness and hypothermia, then taken to a local hospital.
