WATERVILLE, Maine — Police in Maine say a woman was rescued after being spotted naked, crying and incoherent in a sewer pipe 25 feet above the Kennebec River.

Rescuers had to rappel down a cliff to pull the 24-year-old Clinton woman out of the pipe, which emerges from a cliff and empties into the river in Waterville.

Police Chief Joseph Massey says the woman was found Sunday after a Maine Central Railroad worker called to report that a naked woman had run through the rail yard toward the river.

The Portland Press Herald says she was taken to MaineGeneral Center Thayer Campus for evaluation. printed on March 29, 2017
