Spanish rescuers rush to save boy, 2, who fell down well

More than 100 firefighters and emergency workers are desperately trying to save a two-year-old boy who fell down a 360-foot well in southern Spain.

Yulen Garcia was picnicking with his parents Vicky and Jose on the mountainside of Totola, Spain near Malaga on Sunday when he wandered away and fell into the uncovered hole, which is only 10 inches wide.
Rescue crews were only able to send a robotic camera about 200 feet into the hole until it became too narrow to go any further, where they spotted a bag of candy the toddler was carrying, but did not see him. He reportedly screamed as he fell down the well, but has not been heard since.

Rescuers are attempting to dig an adjacent tunnel that would intersect with the well that is wide enough to travel down and retrieve the young boy, according to Maria Gamez, a Málaga government official. The effort is being described as incredibly challenging because they do not want to risk jeopardizing the well's structure and causing a mudslide.
“No one is technically prepared to rescue someone from such a narrow hole, but the technology exists to get into places as narrow and deep as this, and everything is being considered,” Gámez said, according to The Guardian. “It’s not just about getting down there, it’s also about keeping the hole open so that the rescue can happen,” she continued.
As efforts continue, it's a race against the clock because the boy has already been submerged for 48 hours. Rescuers fear Yulen may be stuck in sand and water at the bottom of the well, which is as deep as the Statue of Liberty is tall. There is no indication of whether or not he's still alive.
Yulen's frantic parents have reportedly been treated by trauma psychologists while they await their son's fate at the well.

Bernardo Molto, a spokesperson for the Malaga Guardia Civil, provided an update on the rescue efforts.
“So far, what we’ve managed to do is drill into that blockage a bit,” he said. “We’re going to try to clear the earth with a truck-mounted machine and try to dig a parallel tunnel, but to do that, we need to shore up the shaft to reach the boy.”

That rotting body will sour the water
Even though boiling will kill the germs, it can't quite work similar miracles for the shame in drinking it right now.

I don't think there's a big urgency to get to him.

MADRID, Spain --
Rescue crews in Spain early Saturday found the body of a 2-year-old boy, whose fall into a deep borehole 13 days earlier prompted a complex and heart-wrenching search-and-rescue operation that had the country holding its breath.

Julen Rosello fell down the narrow 110-meter-deep borehole on Jan. 13 while his family was preparing a countryside Sunday lunch. Adding to the family's tragedy, Spanish media had reported that his parents had another young son who died of a heart attack in 2017.

Julen's remains were found in the early hours of Saturday by rescuers digging a tunnel to reach him, said Alfonso Rodriguez, the Spanish government's representative for the southern region of Andalusia. They were accompanied by a member of the Civil Guard, which then took charge of removing the body.

I'm pretty sure the well was dug the day before and they hadn't covered it properly...they put some flag stones over the opening...that probably fell into the hole...

The hole was made by a prospector at the request of Jose's cousin's boyfriend to search for water.
The prospector has told police he complied with the law by sealing the hole after it was made but Julen's family say it had simply been covered with stones that weren't properly laid.
Recalling the moment he realised Julen had disappeared down the borehole as he prepared lunch with friends and relatives including a cousin, Jose told a Spanish TV programme earlier this week: 'I was putting some more wood on for the fire and ran towards him.
'My cousin was a bit nearer and threw herself on the ground as I reached the orifice.
'He had already gone. I heard him cry at first but then I didn't hear him cry anymore.' In an interview with Malaga-based paper Sur he added: 'My wife went to phone into work to let them know she wasn't going.
