Three-year-old rescued from well in China

WEIFANG, SHANDONG PROVINCE, CHINA (REUTERS) - Rescuers in eastern China successfully pulled a three-year-old boy from a deep well last week in Shandong province.

Chinese state broadcaster CCTV said the boy fell about 12m into the 90m-deep well while playing.

Firefighters pumped oxygen into the narrow hole so the boy could breathe.

Finally, rescuers were able to tie a rope around the boy's wrist and lift him to safety.

He was brought to a hospital where he was treated for minor injuries.
