A Florida man went down a 30-foot well and got stuck there
The event took place in Florida’s De Leon Springs area. An interesting incident was reported to the fire station quite early on Wednesday. In Volusia County, a Florida man descended into a 30-foot well but was unable to get back up. The fire crew, who arrived at the scene, managed to rescue the trapped man.
The incident took place in a wooded area just off Grand Avenue, south of the De Leon Springs area. According to the report about the incident, three young people aged 18-20 came to an agreement and applied to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office. The three teenagers first mow the grass in the field. Then they went down to the well for bragging rights.
According to media reports, one of the young people was trapped at the bottom of the well. The other two teenagers tried to save their friend from the well using a rope attached to an SUV. However, the efforts of the youth fell short. When they couldn’t save their friends from the 30-foot well, they called 911.
Early this morning, 3 young men were climbing into an old well, 35-40 feet deep, outside DeLand. The rope broke, 1 fell and was unable to get out. Thanks to a group effort with Volusia Fire, he was pulled out to safety. Rescue provided treatment on scene for minor abrasions. pic.twitter.com/JCAWBG7ytr

While they were giving information to the emergency teams in 911, one of them was suggesting to his friend who was stuck in the well, “Don’t worry, you’ll get out.” The person who called 911 said that they tried everything for his friend who was stuck in the well, but they were unsuccessful.
The fire crew who came to the scene rescued the man trapped in the well using ropes. The man remained at the bottom of the well for about an hour. Volusia County Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Scott Smoak stated that the man tried to prove that he could only go down and get back up, but failed because he didn’t have enough strength.
The man rescued from the well had various abrasions and wounds. The medical teams who came to the scene did not neglect to carry out the necessary controls. The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office expressed its gratitude to the fire crew for rescuing the man at the bottom of the well.
Volusia County Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Scott Smoak stated that people resort to such crazy things because it’s Halloween time. He stated that these should not be perceived as a joke. Smoak said there are many different wells in the area that need to be properly sealed.
