Dad Saves Boy in Well
Father jumps into open well to save 4-year-old son.
A frightening scene unfolded in Naguatuck, Connecticut Monday when a 4-year-old boy fell into a well.
The child was standing on the well cap around 11:30 a.m. Monday when the rotted wood cover gave way,
sending the child down the 25-foot shaft.
A contractor working on the home used a rope to lower the boy's father into the well to rescue the child.
He pulled the two to safety before firefighters arrived, officials said.
Firefighters treated the boy, who was soaking wet, for a cut on his head.
The father and son don't live at the home, but were visiting at the time of the accident, a spokesperson for the Fire Department said.
