After someone reported 2 kids playing in the sewer on Thursday, fire rescue crews conducted a precautionary search in the sewer on South Irvington Court in Aurora.

As it turns out, this happened to be something of a Balloon Boy-like hoax, as crews did not find any children in the sewer.


Denver7 was on the scene and said a witness called 911, triggering the search. The witness told Denver7 she saw a manhole cover pop up as she was trying to park and could have run over the kid. Neighbors also say they've seen kids and adults venture down into the sewer to retrieve balls before.
