(NBC) -

A miraculous rescue after a lion cub fell down an 80-foot well in India. 

Local villagers called in emergency crews after spotting the two-year-old female Asiatic Lion in the well. 

Crews lowered a man in a protective cage into the well to help get the lion out. Rescuers were eventually able to get a lasso around the lion and pull her out of the well and into a cage. 

This happened in a village about 100 miles north of a nation park that's the world's last refuge for wild Asiatic Lions.
