The Next Time You Think You've Had A Bad Day....

SMITHTOWN, N.Y. - A teenage worker taking out the garbage at a Long Island doughnut shop fell into a sewage pit and died Sunday night.Amiri Zeqiri, 17, slipped into an open cesspool behind a Dunkin' Donuts in Smithtown, 40 miles east of New York City, police said. There usually was a manhole cover over the cesspool, a hole that collects drainage and sewage, police said.
The victim's younger cousin found him in about 8 feet of water and ran to a nearby store for help but when he returned the teen was no longer visible.

Suffolk County police pulled the teen from the cesspool and took him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Doughnut shop parent company Dunkin' Brands Inc. didn't immediately return a telephone message left after hours at its headquarters in Canton, Mass.
