Wow. 30 years.
I think Jessica is one of the only ones who doesn’t remember. She was only 18 months old at the time of her ordeal.
The world (well, those of us who were alive in 1987) was captivated by this rescue.
Although she may not remember, the references live on in pop culture references.
Like Bart’s Timmy O’Toole on The Simpsons…
There was Cam’s revelation on Modern Family – he also fell into a well on the same day as Baby Jessica…
And actual footage of the rescue featured in MJ’s Man in the Mirror video. (3:42 mark)
Jessica is 31 now and has 2 kids.
