A three-year-old girl, who had fallen into a 165 ft-deep borewell in Bihar's Munger district, was rescued Wednesday night. The 31-hour long rescue operations came to an end when Sana was pulled out from the borewell, where she had fallen and had got stuck at nearly 45 feet below the surface.
Locals who had gathered around the incident spot shouted slogans and applauded the local administration for their concerted efforts to rescue Sana. The girl was rushed to a hospital in an ambulance, as soon as she was rescued, the police said.
Sana’s father couldn’t thank enough MP Chaurasia, who was being referred to as the ‘hero’ of the entire rescue operation. Chaurasia descended the borewell once it was dug and had transported three-year-old Sana upstairs, through the ladder which was used by the authorities for the rescue.
I am thankful to MP Chaurasia for his extra-ordinary efforts in rescuing my daughter, said Sana’s father while talking to India TV. He was continuously involved in the task since 4:00 pm on Tuesday and did everything possible to ensure the safety of my child, he added.
Thanking him further, the three-year-old’s father said Chaurasia consoled Sana, who was in a state of shock as she was rescued and pulled her out. Applauding the authorities for their actions, Sana’s father referred Chaurasia as the ‘man of the action.’
“I would again like to thank MP Chaurasia ji for his efforts in the rescue operations, he is man of the action,” he said.
Another relative of the three-year-old also thanked Chaurasia for his hard work during the rescue operations.
While talking to India TV, Sana’s father also said that the girl was given immediate treatment at the hospital, as soon as the rescue operations concluded.
Three-year-old Sana fell into the borewell on Tuesday, while she was playing around the spot. An alarm was immediately raised by her family members.
Tarpaulin sheets were placed above the trench by the rescue team, to prevent water from seeping as it could have jeopardised the operation.
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar expressed delight over the girl's rescue and congratulated all those involved in the operation. He also issued instructions for proper treatment of the girl and prayed for her speedy recovery.
