Baby Mahi

Like many people, I have been following the news about ‘baby Mahi’, a young girl who fell down a borehole while celebrating her 5th birthday

She has been trapped at the bottom of the borehole for 3 days now while rescuers try to reach her.

CCTV images have caught only a glimpse of her hand, which does not appear to have moved, raising fears that she died in the fall. Family, friends, and well-wishers, however, continue to hope and pray that she still lives

There is a video here –

This is not the 1st time a child has fallen down a borehole in India. How difficult is it for the Government and drilling companies to put some sort of cover on these boreholes to prevent similar accidents happening in the future?
