MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. (WZZM) A woman walking in Muskegon Heights suffered a minor injury Tuesday afternoon after stepping into an uncovered water pipe.
The incident happened on Broadway and Jarman Street Tuesday afternoon.
The Department of Public Works tells us that the 12-inch tube is normally covered, but sometimes the covers get stolen and sold as scrap metal. The woman did not notice the cover was missing and stepped into the tube and got her leg lodged in the tube.
The DPW and Muskegon Heights Fire Department were able to free the woman. She was taken to the hospital with a minor leg injury.
The DPW says they will be getting a cover for the tube as soon as possible.
