ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: A group of Ukrainian rescue workers pulled a local man out of an 18-meter well Monday in Ukraine's Shargorodsky region. The man, 44 year old Yury Fakhov, fell into the well while attempting to clean it on Saturday. Fakhov's plight was discovered soon after, but it took rescue workers until the early hours of Monday morning to pull him out. Video footage of the event filmed by Ukraine's Channel Five, showed a rescue worker descending into the narrow well, and then climbing out, after Fakhov was pulled out to a chorus of applause and 'Happy Holidays!' wishes by rescue workers. Fakhov was given oxygen supplies and food while at the bottom of the well, and underwent a medical examination after being extracted. According to media reports, he did not require hospitalization, and video footage showed him able to walk after being pulled out of the well.
