The Riley Fire Department and other emergency responders rescued a 10 year old girl from a well Saturday evening.

The girl was playing in her southern Vigo County backyard with her family when the concrete well cover she was standing on broke in half.

She fell about 15 feet down into the well and into the water.

Emergency workers were able to lower a ladder to the child.

The rescue took a little less than 10 minutes.

She suffered only minor scrapes and bruises.
