According to 29 year-old Matther Jacob Roberts, he fell into the well after being chased by a dog in Pecatu, Bali.
On Saturday (6/6), local residents finally heard a man yelling for help and located the victim.

After arriving at the location, witnesses saw that there was a foreign national at the bottom of the well with only a small amount of water left,” added Sooai.
Local village residents contacted the police and Bali Basarnas to evacuate the victim from the well.
By 1:30 pm officers dressed in full personal protective equipment as a precaution were able resuce the man from the well.
The victim is being treated at BIMC Nusa Dua Hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
