REMAINS OF THE DAY

Sewer diver Julio Cu Camara, 52, kneels in a cage while putting on his helmet before a dive at the drainage system plant in Mexico City on Thursday. Cu Camara’s job involves diving in the city’s sewage system to clear blockages and repair infrastructure, working an average of four times a month, for about 30 minutes to six hours depending on the amount of work needed. Cu Camara, who started working as a sewer diver 30 years ago, uses a diving suit and helmet that weigh more than 40kg for protection. During the course of his work, he has found dead humans, horses, weapons and car parts, among other things.Mar 24, 2013
