ROY, Utah — A woman was taken to the hospital Friday after falling into through an uncovered manhole in Roy.

The woman had just gotten off a bus in the area of 1900 West 6000 South when she fell in and got her foot stuck after breaking a 2-inch water pipe.

Crews from Roy, Weber and Ogden were able to turn off the water before using a pulley system to extract the woman from the hole.
