Gurgaon tragedy: 5-year-old Mahi declared dead

Gurgaon: Five-year-old Mahi was declared dead by the hospital authorities after the rescue teams lifted her out of the 70-feet borewell on Sunday afternoon.

Mahi had fallen into the borewell on June 20.

The rescue teams reached the child after 86 hours on Sunday morning but could not save her.

“Mahi has been pulled out from the borewell… She is dead,” Gurgaon District Magistrate PC Meena said.

The five-year-old fell into the borewell on June 20 in Kho village near Gurgaon.

Earlier on Saturday night the rescuers had managed to pierce a hard rock which was a major hurdle that the rescuers had been struggling to break for the last two days.

The officials had taken help from L&T and GMR to procure specialised equipment to help lift Mahi out of the pit.

Oxygen was being constantly supplied to Mahi since the rescue operation began. Over 100 officials drawn from the Army, fire, police, Gurgaon Rapid Metrorail, health and revenue departments, and locals were involved in drilling a pit parallel to the borewell.
