The City of Kemp police chief was rescued from an abandoned water well he fell in by sending a text message.
A short time later Council had fallen in and texted officials at Kemp City Hall to rescue him.
Deputies found Council and used a long dog leash, according to Kaufman County officials, to reach him until fire personnel arrived on scene.
Council was in the abandoned well for nearly an hour and fell down nearly 15-20 feet before bracing himself.
Council only has minor injuries from the incident and was taken to a local hospital after being rescued.
