Toddler successfully rescued from 60-ft borewell after 48 hours
An 18 month-old-boy who had fallen into a 60-feet deep borewell in Hisar’s Balsamand village was rescued on Friday.
The boy, identified as Nadeem, was successfully rescued in a joint operation carried out by the Indian Army, civil administration and the local police. He was later handed over to his parents.
“The Army engineers prepared the heavy equipment of dozers and JCB. With the assistance of civilian excavators, the engineers had already started digging to construct a connecting tunnel 60 feet deep to avoid any harm to the child,” Indian Army said.
Nadeem, who was playing outdoors, fell into the borewell on Wednesday.
District Magistrate of Hisar Ashok Kumar Meena said an investigation will be conducted into the matter and legal action will be taken against the person who dug the borewell without taking permission from the department concerned. (ANI)
