EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – City of Evansville tweet clears up misinformation.
The Evansville Water and Sewer Department was quick to tweet that it was not a storm drain in which a 5-year-old child fell into on Thursday but rather a well pipe.
The well pipe is believed to be leftover from an industrial operation on the property where the boy and his family were watching fireworks.
A call was made to the Evansville dispatch on Thursday to report that a 5-year-old boy had fallen into a storm drain.
The boy was rescued by the Evansville Fire Department.

First reports incorrectly indicated it was a storm drain. However @EWSUtility does not have a sewer or storm drain on private property. pic.twitter.com/QX9d33TCKR
