Woman in well cheats death

A 55-year-old Iranian woman who was thrown into a dry well by her relatives after a dispute over inheritance survived in the well for 22 days. Khadijeh Iran-Nejad was rescued after a passing peasant heard her cries for help, according to the Iran News daily. Two relatives had tossed Ms Iran-Nejad into the well and then flung boulders into it in an attempt to make sure she was dead. The boulders missed her and cracked a canal under the floor of the well. Ms Iran-Nejad survived by soaking a cloth in water seeping from the cracks and sucking on it. The paper said she was hospitalised, but was in good condition.
