    You know, the baby that fell into the well? I heard her name come up recently during a tv show and was just wondering where she is now and what she's up to.

    I saw an emotional tv movie about her some time ago and thought of starting this topic then but I never did.

    I remember hearing that the some of the rescue workers/paramedic involved, including that paramedic that carried "Baby Jessica" to the waiting ambulance, have committed suicide. Am I the only one who heard this?

    Danny, you are correct. I recently saw a special on the rescue and the paramedic could not cope with the sudden notoriety, a real tragedy.
    I also found this article: Baby Jessica It says Jessica is suffering from some bad disease.

    On New Year's Eve our local NBC affiliate ran a loooooong tape of what must have been a Texas station's follow-up on the story. Jessica has had 15 surgeries for her disease, she wants to sing the national album at the Super Bowl one day, etc. She obviously doesn't remember being trapped in the well, but the event still follows her around.

    On the story they said that the paramedic didn't commit suicide until 1995, which was what, eight years after the rescue? It seems like most of his "sudden notoriety" would have faded long before then.

    If Jessica wants people to forget about her well incident, I would think singing at a Super Bowl is not going to help!! [​IMG] You know the media will jump all over her well story if she ever does sing in the super bowl.
