Niwari (Madhya Pradesh), November 5, 2020
An over 24-hour-long rescue operation continued in a Madhya Pradesh village here to save a four-year-old boy, Prahlad, who accidentally fell into a 200-feet deep borewell. The Army has also been engaged.
A parallel borewell is being dug to reach Prahlad, and oxygen is being supplied to him.
"The child is at a depth of around 49 feet, and 45 feet digging has been done as of now. The administration was working throughout the night. The whole country is praying for the child," said state Home Minister Narottam Mishra.
Prahlad fell into the uncovered borewell on Wednesday while playing. His father, Harikishan, is a resident of Setpura village.
Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan wished for the child to be rescued and said, "The local administration and Army are engaged in rescue work to save the innocent Prahlad who fell in borewell in Setpura village of Orchha. I am confident that Prahlad will soon be taken out safely. God bless the child, let's pray together.
