16-year-old girl rescued from NC well after fall

HENDERSONVILLE (AP) — A 16-year-old girl has been rescued several hours after she fell into a well at a house northwest of Hendersonville.
Emergency crews found Alyson Myers of Arden after she fell through a rotten porch floor Thursday into a 60-foot well.
Henderson County rescue workers were called after the teen’s boyfriend returned to the home and heard her screams.
Myers was alert when she was pulled from the well and was taken to an Asheville hospital for evaluation.
Sheriff’s Capt. Frank Stout says investigators think Myers was sweeping the porch when she stepped into a small opening which had rotted.
Stout says she fell into water at the bottom of the well but was able to climb onto a ledge.
County tax records show the house had been built in 1892.
