Boy Rescued After Hours Trapped Down Well
9:37am UK, Wednesday October 19, 2011

Firefighters in China have been involved in a dramatic rescue operation after a toddler fell down an abandoned well.

Rescuers used a hook to drag boy out of well
The boy got trapped while out playing with his friends on farmland near Heze City in eastern China's Shandong province.

Local villagers tried to pull him out by lowering down a rope but failed.

He was able to hold on to the rope until the firefighters arrived.

Boy was taken to hospital after his ordeal

The rescue equipment was too large for the well, which was only 45cm in diameter.

Firefighters tried to send one member of their team down the well but he could not fit in the shaft.

Eventually the team lowered a harness down on a rope and asked the boy to wrap it around his arm.

They then lowered down a pole with a hook, hooked onto his clothes and pulled him out to safety, before he was taken to hospital.
