Vandana rescued from 45-ft deep pit after 27 hours

After a wait of over 27 hours, two-year-old Vandana was rescued by an army team from the borewell in Hulaspura village on the Agra-Mumbai highway on Wednesday night.

Vandana had fallen into the 45-feet deep borewell on Tuesday evening while playing with her father.

A huge pit on a flat ground was dug parallel to the borewell with the help of dredgers to enable rescue personnel go down and then carve a tunnel in a bid to reach the girl and bring her out.

The Army was called in after efforts by the locals to rescue the girl failed.
