However, Rav Chanina didn’t even bother praying for her. He merely said, “she’s fine.” An hour passed and the girl was nowhere near fine. She was still at the bottom of the pit and no ladder could reach her. The folks went to Rav Chanina again, who, again succinctly said, “She’s fine.” After another hour, by which time naturally the girl should have been drowned, they went again to Rabbi Chanina, who again seemed unconcerned and said, “it’s okay, she’s out.” They ran to the well and found the girl sitting by the side of the well as if nothing had happened. They asked her how she got out and she told them Father Abraham had carried her out. Puzzled, they returned to Rabbi Chanina to find out how he had been certain she would be okay and why he wasn’t concerned about her danger. Replied Rav Chanina, “since her grandfather had dug those wells for altruistic reasons for the benefit of the public, there was no way any harm would come to his granddaughter through those wells.”.
