Coimbatore, Sep 30 (PTI): A construction worker from Odisha fell into a well in Tirupur district while trying to pull out a branch from a neem tree and was rescued, police said on Wednesday.
The 21-year old Motto had tried to get the neem tree branch to brush his teeth when he fell into the abandoned well, the police said.
As the worker noticed a venomous snake in it, he clambered up five feet above the water, they said.
Meanwhile, his co-workers informed the police and fire and rescue personnel.
A fireman got in and brought Motto up.
The worker with injuries on his head and limbs was later hospitalised, they added. PTI NVM NVG NVG
