We all know Texans are a determined bunch, but this dedicated utility worker is being praised for going the extra mile. A Texas utility worker is being praised online after a viral photo showed him submerged head-first in a filthy puddle to plug a burst pipe.
When a water line burst in her Hood County neighborhood, Andrea Adams decided to check out what was going out outside. It was there that she saw a utility worker totally submerged in muddy water. She took a picture of the incredible sight and it almost immediately went viral online.
Since then the image has been shared thousands of times on Facebook and in local media, as people praised Cox’s dedication to the job. Cox was photographed with only his legs still dry and wearing Wrangler jeans, so the company is also giving him a year’s supply of pants.
