He is doing well.

Fire brigades were called to the scene of an incident at a petrol station on Wednesday night after an 11 year old boy had fallen down a manhole.

The incident happened shortly before 7pm on Oaks Road in Dungannon, Co. Tyrone, a Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson told the PA news agency.

Officers then used a specialist breathing apparatus and a harness to rescue the boy from the four metre drop and he was conscious when saved.
