Following McClure’s rescue on October 16, 1987, surgeons had to
amputate a toe due to
gangrene from loss of circulation while she
was in the well. She also has a scar on her forehead where her
head rubbed against the well casing. She had 15 surgeries over
the years and has no first-hand memory of the event.
