Oh, I thought she had been trapped in a well for 17 years and managed to take her classes and graduate... Quite different...
Little girl who fell down the well is now a high school grad
MIDLAND, TEXAS (AP) -- She held the attention of the nation and the world as a toddler 17 years ago after she fell into an abandoned water pipe.
Crews in Texas struggled for 58 hours to rescue 18-month-old Jessica McClure from the eight-inch-wide pipe.
She's 18 now, and Friday night she became a high-school graduate.
