In a heartbreaking incident, two-year-old Sujith Wilson who was trapped into an abandoned borewell in Tamil Nadu since Friday has now been reported dead.
Sadly after multiple futile attempts to rescue the boy, there was very little that could have been done after more than 80 hours. As per the Quint, a bad smell started coming from the borewell on Monday and shortly after that the decomposed body was recovered.
But, what is even more saddening is the fact that the boy’s body was dismembered and the team was able to retrieve only a portion of the body.
Speaking to ANI, disheartened Commissioner of Revenue Administration J Radhakrishnan said:
“We tried our best to rescue him but unfortunately, a foul smell had started coming from the borewell in which the child had fallen.”
On Tuesday, October 29, Sujith’s body was brought to Pudur for cremation at the wee hours.
On 25th October, while playing near his house in Nadukattupatti, Sujith had fallen into the borewell near his house in Nadukattupatti. Though a rig machine was used to drill near the well, it was damaged due to the presence of rocks.
Post which, a high-speed engine from Ramanathapuram was brought to complete the drilling, but it took a lot of time.
As the news surfaced, many came forward to share their condolences. In a short while #RIPSujith and #SorrySujith started trending on Twitter and this is how people reacted to the tragic news.
