After hours spent of men widening the well in the rural Starr county, the child was passed 8ft up from crew member to crew member until he finally reached the surface. The boy was transported by helicopter to a nearby hospital after six hours of being stuck several feet below the surface. The Starr County sheriff said the 4-year-old was in stable condition and he thanked everyone who was able to help save him. Sheriff Rene “Orta” Fuentes stated, “Last night proved to be a testament of our community and neighboring communities’ unity and sincere concern for each other.” Almost two dozen different lines of work from multiple counties played a role in this rescue such as fire departments, law enforcement, EMS, DPS, game wardens, and even a local pastor.
