Other Incidents of Toddlers Being Rescued

New Delhi, Jun 23 (IANS): Even as four-year-old Mahi battles for life at the pit of a 70-foot deep borewell in Manesar town near Gurgaon, where she fell Wednesday night, here are some previous, similar incidents when toddlers were rescued after days of complex operations:

1. Prince, 6, was rescued from a 50-foot deep borewell in Haryana's Kurukshetra after two days of rescue operations back in 2006.

2. In a similar operation, army personnel rescued two-year-old Sonu after he fell into a 15-feet-deep borewell in Agra.

3. A five-year-old boy fell into a 250-300 feet deep borewell in Jaipur in 2009. While the child was rescued safely, another incident in neighbouring Dausa district was witnessed when four-year-old Anju Gujjar was rescued from a 50-foot deep open borewell.

While the children have been lucky to have survived, there have also been ill-fated incidents where the victims died from their injuries.
