GUEST,TJ in San Diego Origin: Little CATHY FISCUS - died in well (14) RE: Origin: Death of Little Kathy Fiscus (Osborne) 01 Feb 10

Talk about deja vu. I was nine years old and still remember the old black and white live television pictures from a Los Angeles station covering this attempted rescue. Seeing the coverage, I think many children pictured vividly, as I certainly did, what it must have been like for the little girl trapped and unable to move in that narrow well. I still have a bit of claustrophobia in tight places. I would not be surprised if Cathy Fiscus' plight was behind it. In those days, it was not uncommon to find uncapped water wells in open suburban or rural areas. This incident caused a public outcry to fix that problem.

I never heard a song associated with this case, but have seen many references to one.
