Woman Fatally Injured After Falling Into Septic Tank While Gardening

On Tuesday, a 74-year-old lady was discovered dead in her North Port home’s septic tank after falling into it while gardening, according to authorities.

The woman was watering plants outside her house on Andalusia Street when she fell into her septic tank through a big hole, presumably caused by the top abruptly collapsing in, according to the North Port Police Department.

Although her identity has not been revealed, it is apparent that her neighbors adored her.

Neighbors reported she baked and cooked for them all the time, and she was always gardening.

The incident is being investigated by North Port police.

The location was cordoned off with yellow caution tape and a sign warning of hazard.

“It’s like ours is right in the front yard.” It was driven over by my spouse. We have a restricted amount of space and a large number of automobiles. But they said she was only watering your plants? And, somehow? I’m not sure. It’s a difficult nut to crack. It makes no sense to me. Carol Westenberg remarked, “It’s such a terrible thing because he was such a nice person. You’re still thinking, she’s over there”

It’s terrifying, according to Westenberg, to think you could just fall in.

Septic tanks are used by tens of thousands of individuals in Southwest Florida.

Martin Guffey, president of Martin Septic Service, recommends inspecting it every five years.

Signs of a clogged septic tank might be seen.

Slow drains, sewage backup, unusually green vegetation, or a foul stench outside are examples.

Depending on how long it’s been since the last inspection, it might cost anywhere from $100 to $900.
