HENDERSONVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -

It was an emotional reunion Monday night in Henderson County, as a teenage girl reunited with the dozens of people who helped rescue her last month.

Alyson Myers fell some 60 feet down a well before being able to climb back up and call for help.  She was in the well for around six hours before she was finally rescued. Between surgeries and recovery, she's kept a high spirit.

Monday, Myers joined her mother and father in thanking everyone who was involved in the rescue. The reunion took place at the Dana Fire Department

"I just can't thank everyone enough for what happened and how much they helped me. It's just a job to some people, but after this it's so much more," she said.

Rescuers said they still remembered that day, and said that all that happened was a miracle.  They are also calling Myers' recovery a miracle because she's made incredible progress in such a small amount of time.

Myers is still recovering from two back surgeries and a reconstructive surgery on her nose, but she plans to make a return to her high school in the fall.
