    Four men working to clean part of a sewer in Kampung Melayu in East Jakarta were found dead on Tuesday. Authorities suspect the men were trapped by water inside the sewer and suffocated.

    “They died inside the sewer,” Timur Munadi, chief of East Jakarta Fire Agency, told reporters as quoted by

    Timur said there were five workers in the group, one of them survived.

    The men began cleaning the 1.5-meter diameter sewer pipe around 9 a.m. and were found dead at 10:30 a.m. inside the sewer in Kali Baru, Gunung Antang.

    The bodies were evacuated in the afternoon and have been taken to Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital for autopsy.
    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
