WATERVILLE, Wash. (AP) — An 83-year-old woman fell into a backyard well in rural north-central Washington, spending about 20 minutes in cold water before she was rescued. Authorities were called to a Waterville home at 8:53 a.m. Monday. They found Ernestine Eggers close to unconsciousness in water at the bottom of the approximately 30-foot well. Douglas County Sheriff's Sgt. Tom Couey says Eggers was found sitting in about one to two feet of cold water when rescuers arrived.
