Devi, 43, is paid just under US$6, plus, a bottle of booze before he dives into the filthy sewers of India.

What’s more interesting is that sewer divers wear nothing but shorts, or even their underwear!

Concerning safety, according to Delhi Safai Karamchari Commision chairman Harnam Singh, almost 70% of sewer divers die on the job.

In the last six months, for instance, 61 divers have died.
