HANOVER, Germany- The children of St. Nicolai Kindergarten were out on a day trip with school when one of the 3-year-old students fell 75 feet into an old unused mine. The child’s schoolteacher, 37-year-old Ina Koenig, bravely jumped down after him, having no idea how deep the fall was. She held herself and the young boy in the cold water for more than two hours before rescuers lifted them out. Koenig’s body heat helped keep the boy alive. If it hadn’t been for her quick reaction, rescuers believe the little boy would’ve drowned.
