Dog unhurt after falling down 30-foot well

ANDERSON, S.C., May 20 (UPI) -- An Anderson, S.C., cocker spaniel emerged unhurt after falling down a 30-foot-deep well, its owner said.

Amanda Schronce and her family were working Friday to repair a home well when the 4-year-old dog, Reese, jumped on top of the well around 6:30 p.m. to get a look into the well house. Schronce told The Independent Mail the dog did it all the time.

But the well cover had been removed earlier, so Reese took a 30-foot dive into an unexpected doggy bath.

Schronce called 911. Firefighters, deputies and the Anderson Technical Rescue team arrived to fish Reese out, and the soaking wet pup was reunited with its owner in less than an hour.
