How did he get mobile coverage?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-12873940
A suspected burglar has been rescued after being trapped down an old well next to a Halifax churchyard.
The man fell 30ft (9m) down the well after vaulting a wall at St Thomas' Church in Claremount Road, Boothtown, West Yorkshire Police said.
Firefighters and paramedics were called out after the man raised the alarm on a mobile phone at 0515 BST on Sunday.

Can we assume he'll be putting in a claim for compensation - and probably win?

A well good joke...
Quote
Invited to a wedding reception by a relative, a redneck and his son travel to the big city for the first time. After eating a lot of salty food, the father is thirsty and continually sends his son for water.
After the last trip the kid comes back empty-handed. The father asks, "So where's my water, boy?"
"Couldn't get any this trip, Pa. Some guy's sitting on the well."

Bet he was well wound up by the time he got out...
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
