Watch the moment firefighters in Wuning county, Jiangxi province save a 13-year-old boy from the bottom of a well after he accidentally fell down into it.
According to CCTV News, the well had previously been covered with a cement plate, but it had been removed. A rescuer had to lower himself down several meters to the bottom of the well and attach the young boy to a harness before he was safely pulled up, looking understandably traumatized by the whole situation.
At least he didn’t have to squat at the bottom for over three days until help arrived.
