A man is recovering after being pulled from a storm drain in Roswell.

The Roswell Fire Department says the man crawled into a 3x3 foot drain on Saturday afternoon.

When asked why he was in the drain, the man said he could not remember.

Battalion Chief Steve Shannon said the only way to get into the drainage pipe is from the Hondo River.

Fire crews had to use hydraulic spreaders to get the man out.

The man suffered some arm and back pain but is expected to be ok.
