MERRIAM (AP) – Firefighters have rescued a woman who fell into a well in suburban Kansas City.

The Kansas City Star reports that the fire crews responded to a call Sunday afternoon that the woman had fallen into the well in Merriam.

Firefighters from Overland Park and Merriam had her safely out of the well within about 20 minutes.

She was taken to a hospital, but it’s unclear how far she fell into the well and if she was injured.
