A two-year-old boy fell into a 25-foot deep borewell in Nadukattupatti of Tiruchirappalli district on Friday.
The boy was identified as Sujith Wilson.
Soon after receiving the information, rescue teams rushed the spot and first dug land adjacent to the borewell using an earthmover to create a tunnel to reach Sujith.
However, the fire service team stopped drilling the land due to rocky terrain below 10 feet.
The boy fell into the borewell while he was playing near his house at around 5:30 pm.
At present, the medical team is providing oxygen supply to the boy from outside the borewell, where rescue operations are still underway.
Health Minister Vijayabaakar, Tourism minister Natarajan, Collector Sivarasu and SP Ziaul Haq are looking into the matter and directing the authorities concerned to try their best and rescue Sujith at earliest.
