It's Friday - and while most of you were on the commute home for the long holiday weekend, a man got himself trapped in a storm drain on the interstate near the City of Cuernavaca Park.

Denver Fire tweeted a photo shortly before 6 p.m. showing crews working to remove the storm drain on Interstate 25 near 20th Street.

No details are available about how the man got down there. It appeared to take several firefighters with equipment some time to pull the grate up and off.

He was freed around 6:15 p.m.

Greg Pixley with Denver Fire tells 9NEWS someone stuck in traffic on Interstate 25 heard someone calling for help and looked around. That commuter reportedly noticed a man wiggling his fingers through a storm grate.

Pixley adds his department is getting conflicting reports detailing exactly how the man got into the storm drain in the first place.
