According to rescue officials, the machine used to extract water from the well was not working at a house in Sorgul Village, forcing a boy to descend down the well for repairs. However, the boy inhaled poisonous gas and fainted.
Six men who tried to rescue the boy also fainted afterwards. Only three of them survived after rescue officials reached the site and pulled out the victims.
