NEWNAN, Ga. (WXIA) -- Megan Winters, the then-7-year-old girl who fell into an abandoned well in December 2013 and suffered multiple injuries, started another round of physical therapy on Thursday.
Her body is still broken, but not her spirit.
It was on Dec. 30, 2013 when Megan was playing with a cousin and two friends in her grandmother's yard in Whitesburg, in Carroll County, and she climbed onto the edge of the old, stone well that was supposed to have a steel grate across the top. Megan slipped and fell, feet first, 50 feet to the bottom. She was severely injured from head to toe.
As soon as Carroll County firefighters arrived, they rigged up a pulley system with ropes, and an hour later lowered Lt. Clay Kierbow into the well, and he gently pulled her out.
Since then, Megan's been on a roller-coaster of recovery.
