Child rescued from well in Pasadena

A 10-year-old girl was rescued after she fell into a 30-foot well in the 800 block of 207th St. in Pasadena Monday afternoon, fire officials said.

The child fell down the well shortly after 4 p.m. on Monday, and was removed from the well at 4:35 p.m., according to tweets from Anne Arundel County Fire Division Chief Keith Swindle.

Swindle said the girl was flown to Johns Hopkins hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, including hypothermia.

"She was conscious, alert and oriented," Anne Arundel County Police Captain Michael Pfaltzgraff said.

It took 21 personnel about 30 minutes to extricate the girl. It wasn't immediately known how the girl fell into the well, Pfaltzgraff said.

The well was on residential property Pfaltzgraff said.
