A terrified mother has revealed she will ‘never mentally recover’ after she watched her 18-month-old toddler fall 20 feet down a sewage drain in horror.
Amy Blyth, 23, was strolling with her son, Theo Prior, when he disappeared through a drain cover as it flipped over and then closed on top of him on Sunday afternoon.
The footage, captured on CCTV from a neighbouring house, showed the moment the quick-thinking personal trainer jumped into the drain to rescue the tot and quickly plucked him from a river of human waste in Tenterden, Kent.
The mother-of-one stood on ledges at the side of the sewer to reach down to her son who had fallen to the very bottom.
Luckily, she was able to grab hold of him and lift him out but his clothes were left covered in human waste.
Describing the ‘horror film’ moment, Ms Blyth said: ‘My first thought was “Oh my God, he’s dead.”’
