'Baby Jessica' a high school grad


''Baby Jessica,'' who held the attention of the nation as a toddler when she fell into an abandoned well 17 years ago, is now a high-school graduate.

Crews struggled for 58 hours to rescue Jessica McClure from an 8-inch-wide pipe in October 1987.

Now 18, McClure joined more than 100 other seniors at Greenwood High School near Midland, Texas, in receiving their diplomas Friday night, The Associated Press reported.

''We're just trying to get back to having a normal life,'' said her mother, Cissy Porter, commenting on her daughter's behalf.

The case of 18-month-old Jessica created a nationwide sensation.
