Toddler rescued from 75 foot well

Three-year-old girl in Argentina is pulled to safety after falling down an abandoned well


A 3-year-old toddler is recovering in Argentina after being rescued from an abandoned well.


Rescue workers spent six hours trying to free Vanessa Mamani who fell 75 feet down the well.. The toddler was taken to hospital suffering from shock but is said to be “doing fine” after her ordeal, and only had minor injuries.

Argentina’s President, Cristina Kirchner, called the rescue operation, which was broadcast live on national TV, “a miracle.”


“She got out and screamed as if she had just been born,” said the President.
