The 911 call, which the FDNY released, begins with the dispatcher asking, “What’s the address in Staten Island?”

The boy responded, “We don’t know. We’re trapped in the sewer.”

The boys yelled, “Help! Help! Help us!”

Responders entered the small opening the boys had used using gas masks and oxygen tanks. According to officials, the entrance was initially about 40 inches wide before becoming about 30 inches wide, which is where the kids were discovered and saved.
