SPOTSYLVANIA, Va. – A father is being treated for his injuries after jumping into a 40-foot well to save his son.

On Wednesday afternoon the two-year-old boy fell in, and his dad didn’t hesitate to go in right after him.

In fact, the whole family jumped in to action, and firefighters said that the mother almost had them both out when they arrived at the scene.

The mother and father first used a rope to help get their son out of the well. The father was then rescued by firefighters.

The child was treated at the scene, but was unharmed. The father has non-life threatening injuries.

The family lives in the 10800 block of Post Oak Road.
