Indian boy rescued from 200-ft well after 16-hour ordeal

A six-year-old boy was successfully rescued alive from a 200-ft well after a 16-hour marathon operation in central India.

The young boy had fallen down a narrow borehole in the village of Manchar Tehsil near Pune, Maharashtra state yesterday (February 20).

Footage captured this morning (February 21) shows the rescue team digging up the ground around the well to reach the boy, and later pulling the young one out by using ropes.

The boy was then taken to doctors for a check and reunited with his family.
