A rescue team in eastern China have pulled a three-year-old boy from a well shaft to safety.

The boy had been playing with friends when he fell down the abandoned well on farmland near Heze in China's Shandong province.

The diameter of the well was too narrow for firefighters to enter so they used a pole and hook to drag him free.
