4-year-old boy rescued from borewell by Army after 35 hours

Dewas, March 12: A four-year-old boy, who fell into a 33-feet-deep open borewell in a village here on Saturday morning, has been rescued by the SDRF and the army safely with the help of a rope.

Roshan, who fell in the borewell in Umaria village in Madhya Pradesh's Dewas district, was rescued on Sunday night at 10:30 p.m., District Magistrate Ashish Singh said.

Singh told reporters here that as soon as Roshan was rescued, a group of doctors examined him on the spot. He was fine but has been admitted to a hospital.

The State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) and army dug a parallel pit to rescue Roshan but a hard rock hindered the operation. Later, Roshan was pulled out with the help of a rope, Singh said. 

He was supplied with oxygen, milk and water while he was stuck in the borewell and was monitored by a camera.
