Three People Swallowed By Cesspool

Andrew Palladino walked outside in the rain Sunday to pick up his paper, when the 71-year old man was swallowed up by a cesspool.

The ground, soggy from two days of constant rain, gave way outside his Long Island home.

"I walked across the lawn, and all of a sudden I disappeared."

Palladino cried out for help, and his neighbor and son were sucked in when they came to his aid.

His son, Dan, said the scene "was like a horror picture."

Firefighters were able to secure the scene and pull everyone out unharmed, if you can call being covered in raw sewage O.K.
