RAYMORE, MISSOURI (KWWL) -- A man was swept away for more than a mile in a sewer system and lived to tell about it.

Officials in Raymore, Missouri say the worker's safety line snapped after he was lowered into the sewer.

The city employee was checking to see if nearby construction was impacting the system.

The 27-year-old man was found about an hour and a half later, and was flown to a hospital.

The victim was suffering from hypothermia.
