A 38-year-old woman was rescued after she fell through a sinkhole and slipped into the well of the neighbour’s house at Irikkur on Thursday.
She was washing clothes when the sinkhole suddenly formed under her feet.
Local residents came to her rescue after they heard the wail of the woman from inside the well.
She was brought out of the well with the help of Fire and Rescue Service personnel, who reached the spot from Mattannur in the district.
The victim was identified as Umaiba, wife of former panchayat member K.A. Ayub.
