A “brave” child was finally pulled from the bottom of an 80-foot well after being trapped there for four days.

Rahul Sahu, 11, is said to have fallen into the well while playing in the backyard of his home in the Janjgir Champa district of Chhattisgarh, India.

In a huge rescue operation, emergency services dug a tunnel a few feet wide next to the well to try to pull Rahul out.

Rescue efforts were delayed by inclement weather and the digging up of venomous snakes and scorpions.

But after 105 hours of effort, Rahul – who is said to have speech difficulties and is hard of hearing – was pulled out of the hole at 11pm on Tuesday.

They determined he was alive and breathing and he was immediately placed in the care of two ambulances waiting at the scene.

Footage shows Rahul being carried out of the hole on a stretcher surrounded by paramedics.

It is believed that a snake and a frog kept him company while he was stuck.

An oxygen line was run through the well to give it fresh air and food such as bananas was given to it.

Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel said: “With everyone’s prayers and the tireless devoted efforts of the rescue team, Rahul Sahu was brought out safely.

“It is our wish that he makes a full recovery as soon as possible. Our boy is brave. A snake and a frog were his companions for 104 hours.

“Today all of Chhattisgarh is celebrating… we all wish for his speedy return from hospital.

“Congratulations and thanks again to the entire team involved in this operation.”

Local reports suggest that around 150 officers were dispatched to the scene alongside 500 personnel, including officers from the National Disaster Response Force.

The boy was taken to Apollo Hospital in Bilaspur, where he remains in intensive care but is in stable condition.

We really hope everything ends well.
