The man who lives inside a sewer

Miguel Restrepo and his wife have transformed an abandoned sewer in Medellin into a home, complete with bed, TV and stove.

A Colombian man has been living inside a sewer in the city of Medellin, in Colombia, for over 20 years.

Although Miguel Restrepo is legally homeless and could be forced out of the sewer by local authorities at any minute, he describes the cramped space he shares with his wife and dog as a great place to live.
