Ill-Advised Tryst Ends With Woman at Bottom of Well

(Newser) – It's tough to imagine an outdoor tryst ending much worse than this: at the bottom of a well, with hypothermia setting in. But firefighters say that's exactly what happened in Ciudad Real, Spain, on Friday night, when a 21-year-old woman and similarly unidentified man decided to have sex atop a boarded-up 50-foot waterwheel well shaft. The Local reports that the boards became loose during their lovemaking, and the woman ultimately fell into the water roughly 30 feet below. How deep was her partner's love for her? Well, he took off.

But he may have been the one to place an anonymous call that led firefighters to the scene, where Spain's ABC reports she was found clinging to the side of the well. They rescued the woman and brought her to a hospital, which treated her for symptoms of hypothermia. She was released the next morning, and firefighters put out a statement warning similarly frisky couples that there are other covered waterwheel shafts in the area. Think such a thing is rare? A Chicago ER doctor told ABC News in December that he typically sees two sex-related injuries each week.
