The two year old boy fell into an abandoned 150 foot borewell on June 6 afternoon outside his house. The NDRF and local administration, in a joint operation, dug a parallel pit to rescue the child. There was not enough space in the 9 inch diameter borewell for the child to make any movements. However, a movement in his body was noticed at wee hours on June 8, almost 40 hours after the incident.

The authorities were keeping vigil over the child through a small surveillance camera and he was provided oxygen supply through pipes inside the borewell.
The boy who stepped into the borewell was covered with jute bag thus he wasn’t able to take any fruits or juices. Earlier a team of NDRF had tried to pull out the child with the help of rope but the attempt failed.
