A man is recovering after falling into a 30-foot well behind an Atlanta home Saturday.

Firefighters told FOX 5 the man tumbled into a well behind a house on Jonesboro Road.

Officials said the man was working to seal up the opening of the well when he accidentally fell into the hole and was trapped for about an hour.

A firefighter had to go into the well to get the man out.

He was alert, but was taken to the hospital with a back injury.
