Everyone assumed the image was fake, yet it is absolutely true.

When a Texas plumber was asked to repair a local woman’s home installation, he was forced to stick his head into a muck hole.

Andrea Adams contacted a plumbing company after her yard flooded.

The firm sent plumber Jammie Cox, who had to lower his upper body into a hole filled with filthy water in order to fix the issue.

When the man was captured after sinking in dirty water, the photo quickly went viral online, leading everybody to believe it was a fake.
