5-year-old Girl, Who Fell in 50-feet Deep Borewell in Karnal, Dies After Being Pulled Out by NDRF
Rescue operations were launched to save the 5-year-old who fell in a borewell in Karnal.

Chandigarh: A 5-year-old girl who fell into a 50-feet-deep borewell in Harsinghpura village in Haryana's Karnal district, succumbed to her injuries, even as she was pulled out by NDRF a day after she slipped into the pit, the police said on Monday.

Announcing her demise, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar in a tweet said, "Deeply saddened to know that 5-year-old Shivani, who had fallen into a borewell in Gharaunda, has passed away.Though she was rescued by @NDRFHQ & district teams & rushed to the hospital,she is very unfortunately no longer with us. My prayers are with her family in this time of need."

The borewell belonged to the family of the girl, who slipped into it while playing in the fields on Sunday in Gharaunda area. A search operation was launched after the family realised the child was missing, only to find that she had fallen into the borewell, the police said.

The district administration and the police were informed and a rescue operation was launched. Later, the NDRF was also informed, the official said. Oxygen was being supplied inside the borewell and the rescuers used a camera to check on the child through which they saw her foot. An audio recording of her parents' voice was also played to give her a sense of security, the police said.

Earlier in July, two-year-old Fatehvir Singh, was pulled out dead from a 150-foot deep borewell shaft in Punjab's Sangrur district after an unsuccessful rescue operation which lasted over four days. In March, an 18-month old boy was rescued from a borewell in Haryana's Hisar district, two days after he had fallen into it. In 2006, a massive operation was launched to rescue five-year-old Prince, who had fallen into a borewell in a village in Kurukshetra. He was pulled out safely nearly 48 hours later
