Hyderabad: Efforts to save baby Chinnari fail 26.6.2017
Hyderabad: More than 60 hours of intensive search later, 16-month-old Chinnari"s body was excavated from the deep pit of the borewell where she had fallen on Thursday evening. At around 6.30 am on Sunday morning, the rescue operation was brought to a halt. Based on the various data tabulated about the water level in the pit, the silt and mud that had caved in and the estimated depth at which the child was lodged, the authorities declared that the rescue operation had failed and that she was dead. To remove her body from the pit, the authorities had to use the airlifting technique where pipes were lowered into the pit and high pressured air was pumped through the pipes into the well. As soon as the air hit the bottom, the water gushed out. With the airlifting technique, any substantial mass that is hit by the high-pressured air is blown apart. As such, the body of the dead child could not be brought out of the borewell intact. First, her clothes came out and then, mutilated pieces of her body that ...
