Pensioner rescued after plunging 26-metres (85ft) down well in Spain

A 72-YEAR-OLD woman has been pulled alive from a well in the south of Spain after plunging almost 100-feet into cold water.

Suffering from hypothermia she was rescued by emergency services after the alarm was raised on Saturday night.

The incident happened in the town of Villanueva del Rio and Minas in the province of Sevilla in Andalucia.

The woman was rushed to a hospital in Sevilla following her ordeal.

Although the legality of the well she fell down is unknown the incident comes just weeks after the Julen well tragedy that gripped the world.

The case of the two-year-old boy who fell down an illegal well near Malaga led to a massive race against time rescue effort that, tragically, was only able to recover his dead body.
