Army and district officials early on Thursday morning managed to rescue a four-year-old girl who had fallen into a borewell with her ordeal lasting several hours.
The girl, Bipasha, fell into the ditch on Wednesday evening while at play outside her maternal uncle’s house in Amarpur village.
The rescue team had to dig a parallel ditch next to the one into which the girl had fallen before they were able to lift her out at around 4 a.m.
The girl was later admitted to the district hospital and a medical official said that the girl was doing fine. The borewell was reportedly dug by the village panchayat, and district officials said that they will investigate the matter. - PTI
