'You're being so brave, baby,' babysitter says on 911 call following well fall

Pasadena, Md. - The recording of a 911 call details the tense moments that followed a 10-year-old girl following 30 feet into a Pasadena well Monday.  ABC2 Investigators obtained the recording from the Anne Arundel County Fire Department.

Just one call was made to 911 regarding this incident, with the caller identifying herself as being the babysitter of the little girl who fell into the well.

The woman, whose name was redacted from the recording, is repeatedly heard calming the girl who asked muffled questions from underground.

"You're being so brave, baby," the caller says.

The babysitter at one point tells the little girl they plan to lower a ladder down to pull her out,  but dispatch intervenes, instructing the caller not to enter the well.

Members of Anne Arundel County's Confined Space Rescue Team conducted the rescue, pulling the girl to safety.  She was taken to Johns Hopkins with serious injuries.  A Fire Department spokesman tells ABC2 she is out of the hospital and expected to return to school this week.
