CIUDAD REAL , Spain, April 3 (UPI) — Paul Simon missed this one in “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover.”
Spanish police are hoping to speak to a man who allegedly left 21-year-old Edelia Aponte at the bottom of a well after she fell in while they were having sex.
Aponte got stuck in the water at the bottom of the 15-foot hole for about a half hour after failing to notice that the wood covering the well’s opening was loose.
Police found out about the young woman’s situation after they received an anonymous phone call alerting them about her whereabouts. It’s possible that the man, whom she had only just met that evening, placed the call.
If Ciudad Real police are able to track him down, the man could be charged with failing to aid someone in need of assistance.
Firefighters rescued Aponte from the well and she was taken to a hospital and treated for hypothermia.
“It could have ended in tragedy,” fire service spokesman Leni Portillo told El Crisol de Ciudad Real. “Luckily, she could swim and she wasn’t knocked out as she fell.”
