Portland Mystery After 8 People Seen Emerging From Raw Sewer Manhole

PORTLAND, OR. (THECOUNT) — Portland, Oregon officials have a crappy conundrum on their hands after a video emerged showing three individuals exiting a Portland sewer manhole in early June. Five more unknown individuals were seen exiting the same manhole on the next night, June 3rd.

The security video depicts three people casually hopping out of an active raw sewer located outside of Chown Hardware, located at, 333 NW Northwest Front Ave, in Portland.

At one point, the trio can be seen dusting something off of their clothing, while one man panics for an unknown reason, and rolls around on the ground. He can then be seen ditching his trousers.

Click image below to jump to the cringe-worthy video:

An arriving Bureau of Environmental Services officer said the hole area beneath the cover houses “untreated sewage,” and contains “low levels of oxygen,” reports FoxCarolina.

Chown manager, Kris Lake said, the next night, 5 more people were seen creeping out of the same sewer.

“Like a clown car just pile on out,” Lake said. “It was insane.”

Authorities say, the act of occupying those areas are not only gross, but also unlawful and extremely unsafe.
