(CNN) - Five boys were rescued Tuesday after getting stuck in a New York sewer system.
The New York City Fire Department said the boys crawled in through a tunnel in Staten Island.
They got about a quarter of a mile in before realizing they could not get back out.
FDNY released the 911 call that led to the rescue.
It took emergency personnel about 30 minutes to locate them inside the sewer.
All five kids were taken to the hospital for evaluation.
One firefighter suffered minor injuries during the rescue.
“I’m just happy that we’re all OK,” one of the rescued boys said.
