From Associated Press:
A township man who lives a stone’s throw from the United Water treatment plant got himself lodged headfirst into a vertical 20-inch outflow pipe for at least four hours.But rescue officials and neighbors are still scratching their heads as to why 26-year-old Asef Mohammad jumped the chain-link and barbed-wire fence surrounding the Wilson Avenue water plant, climbed into a water holding tank, then the water pipe.“There is no reason for anyone whatsoever to climb into a pipe,” said Rich Henning, a spokesman for United Water. “It is a facility that pumps water, pumps it out of the ground. This is certainly the first time we have ever seen anything like this.
In May 2013 seven foreigners from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Singapore were arrested for trespassing at the Quabbin Reservoir.
FWIW: Mohammed's parents tell police he left at 2 a.m. in shorts and a jacket and he never came back.
That evening the low was 29 degrees in that area of NJ. I've read Asef was air-evacuated to a local hospital and treated for hypothermia and another CBS News clip reveals reveals "the man is listed in fair condition".
If you ask me, 'fair condition' would be finding him behind bars...permanently.
