    Now then, Birmingham proved eventful in more way's than one :rolleyes:

    Firstly though, our thoughts are with Turkey the massive gayer

    What started out as a "leisurely walk in shallow water" (DRAINS), resulted in the closure of a major road and every man and his dog deployed to pluck him out of the culvert

    None the less it was good to see the technical extraction pulled off without hitch

    Full appreciation I'm sure to the emergency services and everyone involved as it was flawless given the unusual scenario they had to deal with :thumb

    I'm sure he'll be back in the game soon enough, in the meantime maybe you could do some moderating and sort the ROC section out :p:


    With his approval of course here is an edited video of the events as they unfolded, I have of course spared much of the medical treatment, and focussed on the rescue

    So for anyone interested, here is the massive Turkey in full HD, although he looks more like a chocolate orange :D

    Cheer's Ojay for keeping my dignity kind of intact.

    There was far more whimpering and screaming than the video shows.

    Massive thanks to the emergency services who were absolutely brilliant and performed the extraction perfectly.

    I am now sitting at home, dosed up on Co-codamol and Ibuprofen feeling a little worse for wear, icing my fucked knee. Can't help but thinking it all could have been much worse if I was on my own. Be careful out there guys. Turns out I had a crack team of drain0rz with me who came to my aid!

    Enjoy what was one of the most painful experiences of my entire life!

    Glad to hear you are ok though Turk - glad I could help a little bit, even if it were only holding your medicine for a few seconds ;-)

    Glad you're on the mend fella, good to see sterling work from the emergency services in getting you extracted.
    The problem with 28DL meets there's always someone with a camera!

    Could have been much worse if it had been a different location, deeper underground. Glad you are on the mend.

    And big props to the emergency services doing their job quickly & efficiently!
