An 11-year-old Chinese boy survived a whole night some 15 meters below ground level after accidentally falling into a well.

The boy was playing next to the well in the city of Beihai, south China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, on Wednesday when he plunged into the shaft, landing in a pool of water.
The kid had to spend the whole night waiting for help, which came the next day. Firefighters threw a rope to pull him out, but the frail boy had no energy to hang onto the cable. One rescuer volunteered to go down the well, and bring him up the surface. The boy, fortunately, sustained no serious injuries.
