Money down drain man lucky to live

`A man searching for change head first in a Sydney stormwater drain is lucky to be alive after being hit by a 4WD.

The man, 35, suffered a broken pelvis and possible internal injuries as his legs protruded from the drain in Pelican Street at 11.40am yesterday. [..]

Police say he had removed a cover from the drain and was trying to retrieve change when he was hit by a Ford Territory turning into the street from Oxford Street.’
