Water main break floods several blocks of Detroit
Seattle Pi - about 3 years
Among the vehicles trapped by the rising water from the city's latest water main break was a police car, which crews pushed from the icy water using a construction vehicle.
On Friday, street flooding caused by a water main break on the city's east side left several vehicles stuck in water and ice, prompting a rescue by police officers on construction equipment.
"There's about 4 feet of frost on the ground, and even the slightest temperature swing can break an old line," Terry Kilburn, the city's sewer maintenance supervisor, told The Bay City Times.
