The 28-year-old only identified as Liu got trapped in his family’s well after breaking through wood that had been used to cover it in his hometown of Fuliudian Village in Henan Province, the Luoyang fire service reported.

An official fire service video clip shared on social media showed rescuers arriving last Friday as the shirtless man patiently waited with his arms crossed.

He remained that way as gobsmacked locals watched a team of at least five firefighters tie a strong rope around his waist to finally heave him out to safety — totally unharmed, they said.
