A man who climbed down a 30 foot deep well but found it difficult to climb out has been rescued from the well.
The Florida man who got stuck in the 30-feet (9-meter) deep well was said to have climbed on just “to say he did it.”
Volusia County Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Scott Smoak tells news outlets the man was stuck for about an hour early Wednesday before being pulled to safety.
Smoak tells WFTV the man didn’t have the strength to pull himself out of the narrow well but he was awake and talking to rescuers the entire time. He says the man suffered a few bumps and bruises.
The well is located in DeLand, which is near Daytona Beach on Florida’s Atlantic Coast.
He says the well is one of many in the area, and it needs a barrier around it to “keep people from going down in these things.”
