Baby in the Well

Written By: admin - Nov• 04•12

Do you remember the story of Jessica McClure now know as Jessica McClure Morales (born March 26, 1986) if you don’t remember her is a reminder: Jessica became famous at the age of 18 months after falling into a well in the backyard of 3309 Tanner Dr. Midland, Texas, on October 14, 1987. Between that days of October 14th  and October 16th, rescuers worked for 58 hours to free “Baby Jessica” from the eight-inch-wide well casing 22 feet  below the ground. The story gained worldwide attention, and later became the subject of a 1989 ABC TV Movie. As presented in the movie, a vital part of the rescue was the use of the then relatively new technology of waterjet cutting.

It was 25 years ago this month. Seems like it was not that long ago that people waited for news as rescuers worked to free her. Now married with kids of her own.
