Toddler trapped in borewell for 3 days, dies

A two-year-old boy, who fell into a borewell in Tamil Nadu's Tiruchirappalli three days ago, has died, Indian government officials said early Tuesday morning.

Sujith Wilson's body had decomposed and was "dismembered" inside the borewell.

Authorities tried their best to rescue the boy, an official said, adding that the digging process was stopped soon after the body was located inside the borewell.

Last night, government officials said that rescuing the boy would have taken 12 more hours. However, a foul smell from within the borewell led authorities to declare the boy's death.

Officials later retrieved Sujith Wilson's body from inside the borewell and sent it for a postmortem examination.

After the examination, Sujith's body was sent to the family in Tamil Nadu's Pudur for cremation, reported news agency ANI.
