Shelton Man Falls Down Well

January 9, 2013

A 33-year-old construction worker in Shelton, says he was walking around a property searching for a wellhead when he found it — falling through rotten boards and 45 feet down a hole.

Clinton Heinis landed Tuesday in about 7 feet of water.

Rescue crews arrived quickly, giving the man a helmet and life jacket while they worked to lift him out.

Rescued after a little more than an hour, he was taken to a hospital for treatment of hypothermia. He’s expected to be OK.
