Anne Arundel County firefighters rescued a 10-year-old girl from the bottom of a 30-foot well on Monday.

The girl was being treated for hypothermia and injuries related to her fall at Johns Hopkins Hospital, said Keith Swindle, spokesman for the Anne Arundel County Fire Department.

Emergency workers were called to the 800 block 207th Street in Pasadena, Md., around 4 p.m. after multiple people reported that a girl had fallen into a deep well. Rescue workers were able to pull the girl out of the well after lowering down a line. She was out of the well by 4:35 p.m. and flown by helicopter to the Baltimore hospital.

Mr. Swindle could not say how the girl ended up in the well.
