The Indian media reported good news on Tuesday evening: the 10-year-old boy who fell into a well was able to get out alive from the hole where he had been stuck for four days. Young Rahul Sahu, deaf and mute, had fallen into the well last Friday while playing near his house. Quickly, the help had been called on the spot to try to extract the child from the very narrow cavity, deep of 24 meters.
It had therefore been four days since cranes were at work digging an access route to the bottom of the shaft, but large rocks slowed their progress. Meanwhile, rescuers were keeping an eye on Rahul through cameras, and were able to get him food. A hose also supplied the child with oxygen. However, since Rahul cannot speak or hear, it was all the more complicated for the rescuers to maintain constant contact with him.
But the dozens of people mobilized managed to save the boy’s life, as evidenced by a video posted on social media, showing Rahul being escorted on a stretcher out of the well and through the crowd present at the scene. the accident.
This story is reminiscent of that of little Rayan, 5 years old, who fell into a well in Morocco. Unfortunately, the child had died when the rescuers managed to extract him from the hole, five days after he fell there.
