From today's NY Post:
A retiree visiting his son on Long Island for Thanksgiving got a smelly -- and nearly deadly -- surprise yesterday when a section of lawn gave way, dropping him neck-deep into a cesspool.
Eduardo Matos, 71, from Puerto Rico, fell into the sewage at around 11:30 a.m. outside his son's Deer Park home.
"I was calm . . . If you panic, that s- - - will suck you right in," he said.
Matos managed to keep his head above the muck until he was pulled out by his son and daughter.
