A CHINESE woman has been found alive after becoming trapped at the bottom of an abandoned well for 15 days, living off raw corn cobs and rainwater.

Su Qixiu, 38, fell down the concealed well near her village in the northern province of Henan after she went out foraging for herbs and could not climb out as the walls were too slippery and steep.

Su was discovered by a villager out harvesting corn yesterday and then rescued by firemen, state agency Xinhua said.

She was currently in stable condition in hospital and recovering, the agency said.
