Police in Fife say a man has died after falling into a storm drain while trying to retrieve his keys.
KIRO-TV in Seattle reports the man apparently dropped his keys into the drain while taking trash from his apartment to a nearby trash disposal area. He reportedly lifted the heavy grate and reached in but fell in head-first.
KIRO says he died on the way to a hospital.
The Pierce County medical examiner’s office will be releasing the man’s name.
