about the video

A four-year-old boy was pulled from a 20ft borewell after being trapped for four hours. Muhammad Adeeb was chasing a ball when he accidentally fell into the uncovered well outside his home in a rural village in Sahiwal in Punjab, Pakistan, on Monday. His cousin, Usama, also four years old, was playing with when he witnessed Muhammed falling into the bore well. He immediately alarmed the family for help. But locals struggled to pull him out as the well was extremely narrow at only 10-inches in diameter. Professional help was called in but it took a rescue team three hours to reach Muhammad. Eventually, the team used a plastic pipe and a rope to pull the boy out.
