Man falls into well, suffers minor injuries
A 37-year-old man from Breedy Land, Silver Sand, Christ Church escaped serious injury after falling into a well at Sayes Court, Christ Church Monday afternoon.
Police said Leon Roach was believed to be standing on a slab when it caved in.
He was rescued by officials of the Barbados Fire Service, and a preliminary assessment by emergency medical technicians revealed no serious injury, Public Relations Officer of the Royal Barbados Police Force Assistant Superintendent David Welch told Barbados TODAY late this evening.
However, Welch said as a precautionary measure, Roach was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for further assessment.
When Barbados TODAY visited the scene this afternoon, the area was cordoned off, however, the well remained uncovered.
