She fell in the borewell belonging to her family while playing in the fields on Sunday in Gharaunda area, a police official said. After her family realised that she was missing, they launched a search for the child, but then found that she had fallen into the borewell, he said.

The district administration and the police were informed and a rescue operation was launched. Later, the NDRF was also informed, the official said. Oxygen was being supplied inside the borewell and the rescuers used a camera to check on the child through which they saw her foot.
