Worker Rescued From Well

A worker was rescued from a well in Davidsonville Wednesday morning, according to the Anne Arundel County Fire Department. Officials said the 52-year-old victim was conscious and alert when first responders arrived.
Anne Arundel crews reported at 9:50 a.m. that they were working to assist a worker who had fallen in a well in the 2300 block of Rutland Road. The Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue Services was also at the scene providing mutual aid.
They found the man, an employee of a water treatment and well company,  was able to escape serious injuries by bracing himself against the walls of the well to slow his descent, Davies said.
Davies said the water in the well was up to his waist, and it took lowering a firefighter into the well with a harness in order to be able to free the man at 9:57 a.m.
