WELLAND, Ont. -- A man died yesterday morning after falling head-first down a storm sewer, apparently trying to retrieve coins he said had been stolen earlier. The man has been identified as Lionel Desjardins, 57, of Welland. Paramedics frantically attempted to revive the victim, described as weighing about 250 pounds, after he became trapped 11/2 metres down a sewer outside a restaurant. The rescue crew's only option was to pull him out slowly using a tow truck.
