Cu Camara's job involves diving in the city's sewage system to clear blockages and repair infrastructure, on an average of four times a month, for about 30 minutes to six hours depending on the amount of work needed. Cu Camara, who started working as a sewer diver 30 years ago, uses a diving suit and helmet that weigh more than 40 kg to protect him during his dives. During his working experience, he has found dead humans, horses, weapons and car parts among other things. Mexico City has a drainage system which measures more than 7,456 miles (12,014 km) long.

Flushers Tim Henderson (L) and Stan Cheeseman pose for a photograph with land surveyor Neil Lloyd (R) in the Thames Water Fleet sewer, a Victorian sewer system designed by Joseph Bazalgette, beneath the streets of London March 13, 2013. After heavy rainfall, raw sewage gushes into the River Thames from a network of dank sewers beneath the streets of London. A Victorian-era problem that has never been fixed, the cobweb-laced tunnels just metres from a new railway station at Blackfriars underscore Britain's infrastructure backlog. The need for a new "super sewer" for Europe's financial capital was identified as far back as 1989 but privatised utility Thames Water, lacked government funding and had more pressing priorities such as cleaner drinking water.

An Israeli girl stands outside a sewage pipe used as shelter after an air raid siren warning of incoming rockets in the southern community of Nitzan, near Ashdod November 15, 2012. A Hamas rocket killed three Israelis north of the Gaza Strip on Thursday, drawing the first blood from Israel as the Palestinian death toll rose to 15 in a military showdown lurching closer to all-out war and an invasion of the enclave.

A view of the drain where Muammar Gaddafi was hiding before he was captured in Sirte October 21, 2011. The United Nations human rights office called on Friday for a full investigation into the death of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and voiced concerns that he may have been executed. Images filmed on mobile phones before and after Gaddafi's death showed him wounded and bloodied but clearly alive after his capture in his hometown of Sirte on Thursday, and then dead amidst a jostling crowd of anti-Gaddafi fighters.
