Pensioner Who Fell Down Manhole Ignored By Passers-by

`A grandad stuck down a manhole had his cries for help ignored by passers-by for almost an hour.

Clive Colins, 65, was about to open the boot of his car in a busy shopping car park when he stepped back on to a loose manhole cover and tumbled down a 5ft hole.

About 30 people walked past him, even though he was yelling for help and his head, a leg and an arm were stuck above the surface.

One woman even parked her car next to him. But she ignored the retired garage owner’s cries as she put the roof up on her convertible.’
