In July, five people died after falling into a well in southwest China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, state media said.
One farmer fell into the well in Longya village, followed by four people who tried to save him but also fell in.

Is China suffering from an epidemic of well falls? Funny that the BBC decided to note this completely separate incident from 1000 miles away.

How often does raw corn fall down this well?

She falls down a well, her eyes go cross. She gets kicked by a mule. They go back. I don't know.

The problem is that when someone mentions a well to you, the image that comes to your mind is that of this quaint brick well with a tin bucket over it.

Travel enough in third world countries and one day you'll be walking thru the trees and your guide will tell you to be careful as you suddenly find yourself on the edge of this huge whole in the ground that goes down some fifty feet with crumbling rocks on the side.
I'm just trying to our things in perspective of what that scene probably looked like. Probably even worse.

I'm gonna call bull shiat on that number too. In order to lose 35lbs in 15 days, she'd have to burn a little over 8100 calories/day (35 lbs x 3500 calories/ lb. = 122,500. Divide that by 15 days). While stuck in a well.

If there was still water in the well it wouldn't have been abandoned.

Did they fall or did they "fall"?

I heard the locals were complaining that the well water had a 'fishy' taste.

I was thinking the same thing but without the math. Maybe there was some stagnant water in the well that she drank (maybe accidentally when she fell in) and it made her sick and she got severely dehydrated. There is also the fact the that number is an estimate from the husband and sick people sometime look as if they weight less.

Water has no calories.

I can go 50 miles on a bike, drinking almost a gallon (over 7 pounds) of water, and end the ride weighing a bit less than I did at the start. I've burned maybe enough calories to lose half a pound, but if I were stupid enough not to drink and hardy enough not to collapse, I would've lost 8 pounds during the ride -- in less than four hours.

Even for a very fat person, water contributes hugely to body weight. Get dehydrated, and your weight can drop really far, really fast. Ask any abusive high-school wrestling coach.

===========================================================

A 115lb person, unless she's extremely short (and thus, fat at that weight) is not going to have much water weight to lose.

Anything more than 10lbs of water weight on a frame that small is going to end in a horrifying death.

While I'm sure the stress of being down there, screaming bloody murder, helped along the weight loss... I'm still going to call shenanigans on 25lbs weight loss.

On 16 September, a villager harvesting corn heard her cries and called the fire brigade, Dahe Daily reported......  "Although Su did not have any obvious injuries, she still could not speak or eat. Function of her internal organs has not recovered, but she is in stable condition and receiving fluids," Xinhua said.

Wait, so,... she couldn't talk but could yell?

I love it when a group of assholes act like they're in on some secret joke, and the reality is that subtard has shiat for brains.
