Kochi: In a daring effort, a mother jumped into a well and rescued her son at Muvattupuzha near here. Eight-year-old Allen was playing in the courtyard when he accidentally fell into the well last evening.

Shocked at this sight, his mother dived into the 40-foot deep well, reports said. As there was only about 4 ft of water, she managed to stand safe and lift her son above the water.
