Shocking footage reveals the moment when a woman from Haiku City, China was stuffed down a manhole by her boyfriend. She remained there for 60 hours.
The woman, Guo, was rescued wearing only her underwear and was swollen from prolonged exposure to water in the 10-foot manhole.
Guo had attempted to construct a cloth ladder from her own clothing to escape the hole, but found she was not strong enough to lift the lid. Instead, she was lifted from the ground by pedestrians who finally heard her pleas for help.
“I did not sleep at all the first night I fell in the manhole,” Guo later told police. “I could see the darkness around me. I thought that I would not be choked to death if I looked up.”
Guo told police she had been shoved into the manhole during the night by her boyfriend, who owed her around $16,500.
Police eventually arrested the man, who they suspect is a gambling addict, and who admitted to attempting to murder his girlfriend in order to erase his debt.
