EDIT CONTAINS 4:3 MATERIAL A three year old boy has been successfully rescued from the bottom of a 15 meter well in northwest China. Emergency crews tried everything to get the boy out... first, they hooked up a firefighter and lowered him in the hole head first to try and retrieve the child. No luck. Then they tried to lower another child into the well... again, unsuccessfully. Finally, they used a mirror to reflect light into the hole so the boy could see and take hold of the rope they lowered down. He was pulled up safely with only a few bruises.
