GAINESVILLE, Fla. — A 6-year-old girl who fell head-first into a sinkhole in her back yard managed to climb out.

Ashlyn fell into the sinkhole head first hitting the side wall before reaching the bottom. She says she was in pain but, without anyone in earshot, she knew she had to do something.

Coleman fell into a small sinkhole head-first on Wednesday night, while she was outside riding her bicycle near Gainesville.

It was dark outside, so Coleman used her hand-held video game for light and pulled herself out.

She was taken to the hospital, but is expected to be OK.
