PINAL COUNTY, AZ (NBC) — A group of witnesses to an Arizona 2-year-old girl falling into a septic tank worked together to pull her out and revive her before paramedics arrived on scene Saturday.
The girl was walking with her mother about 11:30 a.m. at a swap meet in an unincorporated area of Pinal County southwest of Maricopa, when she stepped on a corroded septic tank lid that covered an underground septic tank, officials said.
The lid broke and she fell in.
