A babysitter called 911 to report a 10-year-old girl had fallen down a 30-foot well in Pasadena Monday and she talked to the child through the ordeal, a recording of the 911 call shows.

A recording of the emergency phone call was obtained by WNAV radio and posted online.

"There's a child in a well," the babysitter said. "I'm right here, baby. I'm right here."

The babysitter kept her voice cheery when speaking to the girl, who was stuck at the bottom of a 30-foot well, 3 feet in diameter.

The Anne Arundel County Fire Department's Confined Space Team arrived with special equipment to help remove her using a harness that could lift the child. Within 30 minutes of the team's arrival, the girl was out, according to a press release from the department.

The girl was examined by paramedics on scene. She was suffering from signs of hypothermia and other injuries. She remained conscious throughout the ordeal.
