SPANAWAY — A fire official says crews have rescued a 68-year-old man who fell down an abandoned, 20-foot-deep well on his Spanaway-area property.
Central Pierce Fire &Rescue spokesman Ed Hrivnak said the man was taken to a hospital for treatment of what appeared to be minor injuries. He was not identified.
The News Tribune reported that the spokesman said the man was in his shed Wednesday evening when the concrete floor underneath him broke away and he fell into the dry well below.
The fire department said the man’s wife saw him fall and called 911. The couple didn’t know the well existed.
