Police: Cesspool cover collapsed under teen
Police say they have found the cover to the cesspool where a Central Islip teen fell to his death Sunday.
Authorities originally thought the manhole behind a Dunkin' Donuts in Smithtown was left coverless, but determined Wednesday the cover collapsed as 17-year-old Amiri Zeqiri stepped onto it.
According to Newsday, police recovered part of the cover from inside the tank on Tuesday.
Zeqiri was taking out the trash during his shift at Dunkin' Donuts when he fell into the manhole.
