But not our potential Darwin. This man removed the cover from the sewer, laid down on the road, and stuck his head and upper body down the drain to fish around for the coins. In this position, his lower body was lying across the road.
His plans to recover his money went wrong when a Ford SUV turned the corner. The driver, of course, failed to notice him. We generally don't expect to see half a person lying on the roadbed. The vehicle's bumper struck the man.
Our nominee was rushed to St. Vincent's Hospital in serious condition, with a broken pelvis and internal injuries. Had he been run over by the tyre, instead of struck by the bumper, police say it is likely he would not have survived.
Loose change is not worth the risk!
