CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A homeless man trying to keep warm crawled into a manhole overnight and got stuck.

According to Corpus Christi Independent School District Police Chief Kirby Warnke, the man crawled into the manhole in front of Haas Middle School in the 6600 block McArdle Road last night to avoid the weather and somehow got trapped.

Around 8:20 a.m., a student heard the man yelling and found him. He called school administrators for help. Warnke said the man appeared to be suffering from hypothermia and was taken to the hospital.

There's no word on his condition.
