Woman rescued from drain pipe under library said that the devil had chased her in there

A woman told rescuers she got stuck in a drain pipe under a library because the devil had chased her.

Police Sgt. John Burt said the 26-year-old woman, whose socks were found in front of the PVC pipe entrance inside a manhole, had taken off her clothing and crawled about 25-30 feet into the pipe and was somewhere underneath the Pearl Public Library in Mississippi.

The woman was found when some boy scouts heard her yelling for help, Burt said, and officials were able to locate her by shining a light down the pipe, which was between a foot and a foot and a half in diameter. When they located her, the woman told authorities that she was stuck and couldn't breathe.

When they asked her how she got into the pipe, she told firefighters that the devil chased her in there. Burt said when the woman was rescued from the pipe at around 6:30pm on Monday, she was taken to the hospital to be checked out. Because of the nature of the situation, the woman's name is not being released.
