5-year-old falls into pit, army engaged in rescue

July 23, 2006 14:54 IST

Army personnel are engaged in drilling a tunnel alongside a 45-feet deep pit to rescue a five-year-old boy who fell into it in a village near Kurukshetra on Friday.

Official sources said the army is drilling the tunnel to make way for an army jawan to enter in it and come close to the pit since the pit's dimension is narrow and it is not possible for anyone to enter through it.

The boy fell in when he was playing near the pit.

Labourers, who extracted a pipe from the pit, left it open.
