  • Little Carrie Ingalls falls down a disused mine shaft and the whole town turns out in an attempt to help rescue her. Quite frankly, I was bored, in spite of the drama.

    Carrie Ingalls is a little girl who wants to keep up with her sisters and, in joining in with them one day, falls down an old, abandoned mineshaft. The townsfolk have mixed feelings about whether or not Carrie can survive, but Charles, Caroline and Mr. Edwards refuse to give up hope.

    It falls to an alcoholic former miner to give them the assistance they need, in spite of Mr. Hansen's insistence that he has no idea what he is talking about due to an old grudge between them.

    After much standing around and digging and most of the episode shot in the dark, an unharmed Carrie is rescued, thanks to this alcoholic who knew a lot more than everybody gave him credit for.
