Four fire departments total helped to pull the boy to freedom. Robert Alvarez, fire chief for the town of Mission, talks about the situation afterward. “What was key in the successful outcome of this too, was that everybody pitched in — everybody,” he says. It took a total of six hours to successfully pull the boy from the well. “Any vibration, any wrong strike of a shovel could cause more soil to fall into the where the victim was at,” Alvarez says, noting there was little room for error to be made.
