Five-year-old girl dies falling in a fifty feet depth borewell in Haryana:
The never-ending borewell deaths continue across India. Within days after the sad demise of Surjit, a young girl in Har Singh Pura village near Karnal, Haryana, died now. She fell into the borewell yesterday, 3rd November, at 5:30 PM. After 10 hours of continuous efforts, the NDRF rescued the girl. She was taken to Karnal's civil hospital where she was declared dead. Unlike Surjith, the whole of the rescue operation was done within 10 hours for a fifty feet borewell hole and still was unable to save the young girl.
Statement of SP Surender Singh Bhoria of Karnal:
SP of Karnal in Haryana said that on November 3rd evening at 5:30 PM, the young girl had fallen into the borewell, which her family has dug outside the house. NDRF quickly rushed to the spot and monitored the girl's movements with the camera and provided oxygen. After ten hours of struggle, they were successful in bringing the girl out of the hole. But it was too late, and she passed away before reaching the hospital.
