6-yr-old falls into borewell in Punjab’s Hoshiarpur; rescue operation undergoing

A six-year-old boy on Sunday fell into a 100-feet deep borewell in Punjab’s Hoshiarpur. The rescue operation is undergoing. The boy was playing in a field and climbed a borewell shaft when some stray dogs started chasing him. The borewell shaft was covered with a jute bag and could not withstand the weight of the boy and gave in causing him to fall into the well.

The boy belongs to a family of migrant labourers. Teams of district administration including a Deputy Commissioner have reached the site. A team of the National Disaster Response Force has also been called, said officials. Meanwhile, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann said the rescue operation was underway and he was in constant touch with the district administration.
