Child Dies After Falling into Well

4-22-06 - A four-year-old boy died Saturday after falling into a well at a home on Wilson N Jones road around 2:30 p.m. Saturday. Bryan County Deputies say the well had a nailed down cover, but it likely gave way. They believe the child climbed onto the well while playing.

The boy fell about eight feet before hitting the water. A family member used a rope to lower himself into the well and pull the boy out. CPR was performed until rescuers arrived. The child was flown to Texoma Medical Center, where he died.

Deputies say they believe the death was a tragic accident.
