The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the death of a man who was trapped in a sewer pipe in Streamwood on Wednesday, officials said.
The man, 22-year-old Brett Morrow of Gurnee, was installing a liner to prevent leaks when he got stuck in the 24-inch-diameter horizontal pipe, Streamwood Fire Chief Chris Clark said. Morrow was able to communicate with fellow workers at first, but was unresponsive when firefighters arrived about 6:18 p.m., Clark said.
