A 6-year-old boy was recovering Saturday after falling 20 feet into a stone well in Shrewsbury.
Fire officials received a call from a Barrows Road home at about 2:36 p.m.
When crews arrived in the backyard, the boys father was outside of the well talking to the child. The boy was partially covered in concrete at the bottom of the structure.
One firefighter was lowered into the well where he was able to observe that the boy had no spinal injuries. Crews were then able to safely lift both the child and firefighter out.
It was unclear how the boy fell down the well.
The child was taken to an area hospital for observation. His condition was unknown.
