Children can be quite a handful at times. Childhood is the time in our lives when we begin to explore things and places we’ve seen and been to for the first time. Toddlers specifically have lots of physical energy—and a great sense of curiosity that drives it. With this at hand, this is also the time for parents to always pay attention to their children.
A grandfather was frantically looking for his 20-month-old grandson after the latter went missing while playing in Xi’an, Shaanxi Province. Apparently, the boy had fallen into a 150-feet-deep hole that was only 30 cm in diameter.
Firefighters and excavation teams immediately came to the boy’s rescue.
For ten hours, they worked tirelessly to save the boy. Heavy machinery was used to rescued the boy.
Because the hole was only around 30cm in diameter, rescuers couldn’t fit into it and grab the boy. Oxygen had to be pumped into the well to keep him breathing, and he was provided with food and water. His family frantically called his name to keep him awake, with the boy trapped around 30ft deep down the 150ft well.
After 10 hours’ rescue, the boy was saved after a huge pit was dug to the side of the way and a tunnel was made horizontally for the child to get out of it.
The child is currently recovering in hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
