Italian media say that Lazio defender Luciano Zauri rescued the granddaughter of Poland's Football Association president Zbigniew Boniek from a well she fell into at a restaurant in Rome. The seven-year-old girl fell into the 4 meter- (13 feet-) deep well on Sunday when the beam covering it gave in as she was taking a look in the mirror at the bathroom of a restaurant near Ponte Milvio. La Repubblica's website said Monday that Zauri, who also was in the restaurant, was lowered into the well on a rope and pulled the child up to safety. The girl was taken to hospital with minor bruises. Her parents are former Italian tennis player Vincenzo Santopadre and Karolina Boniek, the daughter of Poland's former football great, who played for Juventus and Roma.
