Mullica Township police say 57-year-old Tami Camp fell about 10 feet to the bottom of an abandoned septic tank just around 2 p.m. on the 3000 block of Nesco Road in Mullica Township.
The woman was pulled to safety around 4:30 p.m. and airlifted to AtlantiCare Hospital.
Police believe Camp fell through a rotted cover of the abandoned septic tank around 2 p.m. Her son didn’t hear her screams for help for about a half hour, and when he did, he went to a neighbor’s house to call 911.
Camp was conscious and was complaining of severe back pain when she was rescued.
