Winifred Allen (13) and the baby she was holding (Douglas Osborne, 21 months) fell into a disused well at 39 Sydenham Street, Whitstable. Winifred managed to extract herself. Fortunately, Mr Rigden from Albert Street was passing, and by holding with one hand to the top of the well, was able to extract the baby with his feet. He gave the baby artificial respiration, which then completely recovered.
