"I knew like that they were like gonna come in or something so they could like track me down, so they could know where I'm at", Hernandez said.
More than 100 rescue workers looked for Jesse Hernandez, who was playing with other children on wooden planks when one of them broke beneath him.
Jesse Hernandez fell into the four-foot diameter pipe while playing atop a Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation Structure in Griffith Park on Sunday afternoon.

Springer, World Series champ Astros top Texas 4-1 in opener
Verlander is now 10-1 in the regular season since being acquired by the Astros from Detroit in a trade-deadline deal on August 31. Hinch said he never got clarification on what the Rangers were looking for on the review of Odor's errant throw in the sixth.
Jesse Hernandez, the California teenager who was stuck in a Los Angeles sewer for 12 hours earlier this week, has gotten a new outfit from Inside Edition after his ordeal. This all while he was getting hit with raw sewage rushing at 15 miles per hour. Officials tell CBS News if he had gone any further, he may have been lost in the maze of drainage tunnels that snake below the city.
Rescuers hosed him down and cleaned out his eyes and nose with sterile saline.
When sanitation workers opened the nearest maintenance hatch to that location, they saw the boy 11 feet down in the pipe, where it was cold, dark and wet. You could just hear the water running through and you couldn't see anything. Despite the perilous conditions, he managed to find a pocket of breathable air and hang on until he was found. "The odds of someone falling into such a pipe and surviving are slim".
Firefighters gave him a cellphone so he could reassure his family, and paramedics took the teen to a hospital for decontamination and medical aid, Scott said.
"He has tremendous inner strength", said Brian Humphrey, a spokesperson for the L.A. Fire Department, according to the Associated Press. "The odds were not in his favour, and many would call it miraculous". "It's obvious he's not a quitter".
