A 3-year-old boy was rescued after falling into a well that was nearly 300 feet deep (video below).

The incident occurred in March, WILX News reported.

The 3-year-old boy was playing near a well in China’s Shandong Province when he slipped and fell in.

The hole was nearly as deep as the length of a football field, according to Yahoo! News.

Emergency services arrived and injected oxygen into the hole. They used a special device to pinpoint the boy’s location.

The boy was found about 38 feet into the hole. Firefighters let down a rope and pulled the child to safety. The two-hour rescue mission was captured on video.

The boy was rushed to the hospital, but suffered no serious injuries.
