Snake Got Your Hand In A Pipe

Prop Master Brassard has been at it again.

The scenario is a husband and wife are snaking the basement floor drain and the husband sticks his arm down the drain hole to clear some debris when the wife turns the snake on.  The husband becomes entrapped in the snake and the drain. So we have to cut the concrete to get the pipe out… then dissect the pipe… then cut his finger out of the auger. This scenario has happened for 2 different members of a rescue email group at 2 different calls.

The snake is a spring epoxied to the end of a radiator hose.  The next couple pictures are the prop build followed by the pictures from a company drill Brass’s crew did.
