In a mystifying story from Mexico, the attempted rescue of what was believed to be a woman stuck in a well took an eerie turn when police reached the bottom and found that there was no one there. According to a local media report, the spooky incident occurred at around 3:30 AM this past Saturday in the city of Saltillo. The case began when a man who had been walking through a neighborhood heard cries for help from an open drainage well that measures around 20 feet deep. Upon being alerted to the troubling situation, police quickly descended on the scene and set about trying to rescue the unfortunate woman, though they ultimately wound up scratching their heads over how the unnerving event unfolded.
Assessing the situation, cops gathered around the well and shouted down to the woman, asking for her name. In response, they heard her cry out "Jaunita," which seemingly confirmed the concerned resident's report of someone being stuck, though they could see no sign of the woman with their flashlights. Eventually the fire department arrived with special equipment that allowed a rescuer to descend to the bottom of the well. However, to the profound surprise of everyone on the scene, Juanita was no where to be found as the pit was completely empty. A subsequent search of the area, including another well nearby, turned up nothing, which has led many to theorize that the woman crying out from the well was, in fact, a ghost.
