2-Year-Old Boy Rescued After Falling in 10-Foot Hole

The child was examined by medical personnel and is in good condition.
CROSS COUNTY, AR -- A 2-year-old boy is OK after falling in a 10-foot hole, according to the Cross County Sheriff's Office.

Around 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, the boy fell into a narrow hole on Sunset Drive in Wynne while playing with another child.

Cross County Sheriff's Office, Wynne Police Department, Arkansas State Police and Wynne Fire Department immediately responded to the incident and devised a plan to attach a rope to Deputy Josh Orman and lower him head first into the hole.

Orman was able to grasp the boy's wrist and pull him up to safety. The child was examined by medical personnel and is in good condition.

Jerry Brewster, Wynne Street Department director, was then called and sent a load of dirt to fill in the hole.
