BALI: A British man who spent six days trapped in a well after being chased by a dog has been rescued on the Indonesian resort island of Bali, authorities said Sunday.

A rescue team lifted 29-year-old Jacob Roberts from the 4m-deep concrete pit after a farmer in Pecatu village raised the alarm.

"Jacob's calls for help were heard by a local who was going to feed his cows," local search and rescue chief Gede Darmada told AFP. Roberts broke his leg when he stumbled into the near-empty reservoir.

"He looked thin and injured," South Kuta police chief Yusak Agustinus Sooai said after the Briton's rescue on Saturday.

Police took Roberts to a nearby hospital for treatment.
