Baby Jessica Rescue Anniversary, Tuesday marks the 25-year anniversary of a story that captivated the country and touched off an emotional, nationwide vigil. Baby Jessica McClure was finally freed from an abandoned well in Midland, Texas on Oct. 16, 1987. The 18-month-old toddler fell into the narrow shaft two days earlier.
It took dozens of rescuers tunneling up and under her to finally free her. Eventually paramedics were able to squeeze into a parallel passageway and slide Jessica out of the hole 22-feet underground. Jessica McClure Morales is now a 26-year-old married woman and a mother herself.
