The deep-hole bore well is the usual procedure to suck water from the ground. But the same has become a life-threatening issue to a two-year-old kid from Manachanallur, Trichy. Surjith two-year-old kid hails from Nadukkattupatti, Manachanallur in Trichy. His father and mother are owning a cornfield. In order to irrigate the field, a few years back, they have put a deep hole bore well.
Out of lethargy or ignorance, they have sand closed it. There was no metal cover, which was very much essential. The two-year-old kid was playing with his friends and ran in the cornfield. Not knowing the well, the kid stepped on the sand and has fallen deep. Surjith got stuck initially in 35 feet. Understanding the consequences, his father immediately telephoned to fire service and rescue operations are in full swing. Yesterday at 5.30 this incident has happened.
Till morning, his uncle was continuously communicating with Surjith to ensure his safety. But at one point of time, there was a response from the kid. The kid might have fallen asleep. All are just assumptions.
The rescue team tried to put a bore well of 35 feet adjacent to the existing one and send a person to rescue the child. But the vibrations while putting hole has made the kid go beyond 35 feet, and now it is said that the kid is deep down at 70th feet. Response from the kid has also been stopped. Faith is the only weapon on which everyone sails.
Between the National Disaster Management Team has arrived very late in the afternoon today. Yesterday at 5.30 the incident has happened, and till afternoon it was a no.show from the team. They should have preferred air travel. What made them decide to travel otherwise? Is it going to happen the same way for celebrities too? In 2010, the government has amended a rule that the borewell should be closed with metal cover. But there was no further investigations on the development in line with the proposed law
Not sure what will happen to the young kid? Let's all think positively for the recovery of the kid at the earliest.
