On October 14, 1987, Jessica McClure was probably the most talked about person in the world.

Known as "Baby Jessica," she made headlines at 18-months old when she fell into a well in the backyard of her aunt's house in Midland, Texas.

Rescuers took about 58 hours to retrieve her, while the world rooted for her. She remained without food or water the whole time, but by some miracle she was alive when she was pulled out of the 8-inch well.

30 years later, the world is still curious about Baby Jessica and she is answering questions about her miraculous life after her near-death experience.

When Jessica McClure was born on March 26, 1986, her family had no idea that she would become one of the most famous babies in the world. Following her terrifying but successful rescue mission, her story gained worldwide attention and she became a subject of many daytime TV discussion, documentaries and even a movie.

While the media was busy sensationalizing her accident, baby Jessica and her family were trying to get things back to normal.

Due to the gangrene from the loss of circulation in one of her legs while in the well, doctors were forced to amputate one of Jessica's toes. In the subsequent years, she's had over 15 surgeries and the scars to remind her of what she went through.
