2-year-old rescued from well after 18 hours

A two-year-old boy was rescued after being stuck in a narrow, deep well for 20 hours.

The incident occurred in Xi'an city, capital of Northwest China's Shaanxi province, on Friday, May 22.

The well measured 30cm wide and 40 meters deep.

On Thursday night, rescuers first had to dig a hole beside the well in which the boy fell into, before linking the hole with the well to rescue the child.

During the rescue, a relative of the kid kept talking to the boy, to make sure that he remained awake.
