ANNVILLE, Pa. – Fire officials in central Pennsylvania say a woman was rescued after she fell about 30 feet into an abandoned well.

The Annville-Cleona Fire District reports on its Facebook page that the woman was reported down the Annville Township well just before 9 a.m. Saturday.

Local firefighters sought aid from special operations and rescue teams from Lancaster and Lebanon counties, and emergency personnel “set up a vertical hauling system” and rescued her.

After the hour-long rescue operation, the woman was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries said not to be life-threatening.
