Default Man Falls 30 Feet Down Hole In NYC Sidewalk

NEW YORK -- A man plunged 30 feet through a rusted-out metal plate on a New York City sidewalk as he stepped outside an Off-Track Betting Parlor to smoke a cigar.

Vincent Riggio was rescued by firefighters with just cuts and bruises Saturday afternoon. The 59-year-old businessman had apparently stepped on a corroded plate that was holding doors in place over a TriBeCa clothing-store cellar. A deliveryman called 911 and Riggio called his wife from the bottom of the cellar.

His wife, Joann, told the New York Post her husband said he fell through a hole -- about 30 feet.

When help arrived, a firefighter was lowered by rope down the hole and helped fit a harness around Riggio, who was then hoisted up. He was treated at a hospital.

he called his wife from the bottom of the hole?

"Honey, I'm gonna be late. I fell down a hole!"
