Fireman hangs upside-down to save old woman trapped in well in China’s Henan

A fireman in central China was lowered upside-down into an over 20-metre-deep well to save a 64-year-old woman trapped inside.

The video, shot in Kaifeng City in Henan Province on March 6, shows an oxygen cylinder tied by a rope being sent into the well, then a fireman hanged upside-down being lowered inside to approach the old woman and attaching a safety rope on her.

After that, other firefighters pull the old woman and the fireman out of the well one-by-one.

The old woman was sent to hospital after having emergency treatment on-site.
