'I did not want to drown and die in a storm drain'

A MAN who died in a stormwater drain during Saturday's big wet in Brisbane was a prominent member of the city's urban explorer community and feared drowning.

The man was a keen photographer who posted frequently about his "urbex" adventures, which he usually went on with his female partner.

The pair was kayaking through an underground drain network when they became trapped by rising waters from the heavy afternoon storm.

The woman survived and raised the alarm about 4pm, with Queensland Fire and Rescue Service water rescue teams searching the tunnels from 4.20pm onwards.

The man's body was found near the Eagle Street Pier about 6.30pm.
