Out of the dark


“I left the tunnel because I had breast cancer. I had to stay clean. I wanted to be spick and span. I’m going to see all these doctors and I had to be able to shower, wear proper clothing and have some decency, because I was not a homeless bum. I was a PhD living down in a freakin’ tunnel.” Ande, in the drains from 2008 to ’15

Hi. Saw a program here in Sweden about the tunnel dwellers in Vegas.
The girl, Gina, interviewed a man that was living in the tunnels, Travis. What happens to him? Is he still living down there?

He is out of the tunnels, but still on the streets. Very sad, indeed. Best!
