A 2-yo boy fell into a 12-meter-deep dry well with a diameter of 30 centimeters in a small village of Mengzi City of China. Villagers heard the boy crying at the bottom of the pit then they called police. Villagers and the boy's parents tried to pull him out with a rope but unfortunately got his head stuck.

The very first step, rescuers pumped fresh air into the well bottom with respiratory apparatus to remove the high-density carbon dioxide. Then a few camera smartphones were lowered down to the well bottom to monitor everything. The boy's parents also talked to him on phone to keep him from sleeping and instructed him how to drink milk sent to him. After a few attempts, rescuers successfully looped a rope around the boy's chest under the guidance of real-time movie, which was sent back to a software messenger on rescuers' laptop computer via a WIFI network.

After 3 hours' efforts, the little boy was pulled out and sent to hospital.
