A 10-year-old deaf and mute boy who was stuck down an 80ft well in India with a snake and a frog for four days has been found alive.
Rahul Sahu fell down the waterhole on Friday while playing in the backyard of his house in the central state of Chhattisgarh. The tragedy sparked a massive rescue operation of over 500 people, including army, police and disaster relief officials, who were plagued by bad weather, venomous snakes and scorpions.
But they succeeded in digging a 15-feet tunnel with earth movers and cranes to connect the pit with the borewell and rescue the boy on Tuesday night after 104 hours.
He is currently in hospital in intensive care but is ‘stable’ and expected to recover soon, local media reported.
