WAYLAND, Mich. — A City of Wayland worker is in the hospital after getting stuck inside a 30-foot well Monday afternoon.
The worker was conscious the entire time and alert, Wayland Fire Chief Joel Miller told Fox 17.
He was waist-deep in sewer liquid and material.
Fire departments from Wayland and Yankee Springs Township were at the scene.
Other rescue teams were also at the scene.
They sent down a drop air tank and breather so the worker wouldn't have to inhale the fumes, and were able to hoist him up using ropes.
Aero med transferred the man to a local hospital.
The worker suffered a sore arm, sore leg and possibly hit his head, but was otherwise okay.
