Mumbai, Jul 23: While the entire country is praying for the safe rescue of six-year-old boy Prince trapped in a 53 feet deep, bore-well, at Kurukshetra in Haryana, Mumbai Fire Brigade's expert Search and Rescue team has already been dispatched to help him out.

Chief Fire Officer of Mumbai Fire-brigade Amarjeet Singh Jhandwal told sources, a team of nine experts has been sent under the leadership of Assistant Divisional Fire Officer Prabhat Rahandale.

''This is the same team that saved a one-and-half-year old child in Gujarat last year from a similar bore-well which was 200 ft deep.

So Prince should be rescued within a short while, without much difficulty.'' Along with the team, four tonnes of equipment, consisting of cutting, drilling, rope-climbing gear among others, is being carried for the rescue operation, he informed.

The teams were dispatched with urgency via an air-force plane, the distance is almost a two-hour flight but they shall reach the place well within time, he said.

Prince has been trapped for the last 42 hours and the army has been stationed at the spot since 1100 hours yesterday. While the work of drilling a tunnel parallel to the bore-well is in progress, the country is watching and waiting to see him emerge safely out of the borewell.
