Indapur, 2nd August 2023: In Mhsobachi Wadi, four laborers got trapped in an 80-feet-deep well due to a sudden collapse while they were working. The situation called for immediate rescue efforts, and throughout the night, five cleaning machines have been working to lift soil and debris piles. The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) personnel have joined the rescue operation, which is being conducted with utmost urgency.

The incident took place during the ongoing well construction in the Wadi area of Mhasoba in Indapur taluka of Pune district. The upper part of the well is comprised of clay, making the process of concretisation in 30-feet-deep soil necessary.

On Tuesday (1st August), four youths from Belwadi village were involved in the work. Unfortunately, they got trapped under the soil pile following a sudden collapse during their operation. Since then, efforts have been ongoing to lift the dusty and lumpy debris with the aid of four Poclain machines.
