Boy falls into well, finds his missing dog!

A story that started out scary ended on a happy note when a four year old boy fell into a well in Mississippi. Gabe Allbritton survived when he fell into a 20 ft. (six metres) deep well in his grandmother's garden after he went to rescue his dog, Odie, who went missing about three days earlier.

Gabe who heard the dog barking went to investigate, and fell into the deep hole himself. Even the family did not know that the well was in the garden as the surface had been covered with weeds. Rescuers were called and Gabe and Odie were safely pulled out of the well. The boy was in the well for around four hours before he could be pulled up.

Gabe suffered only a few bumps and bruises and is now back home after a check-up at the hospital. They say everything happens for a reason and perhaps Gabe's fall was to find his beloved dog! They have now been happily reunited.
