Gurgaon: Just a week after baby Mahi's body was recovered from a borewell in Manesar near Gurgaon, there's been yet another incident in the satellite township.
A two-and-a-half-year-old boy Sachin fell into a 15-feet pit dug for an electric pole. This time, however, the authorities were quick to react.
After Sachin fell into the open pit, which was one of a cluster of three, at around 6.30 pm on Sunday, a police control van reached the spot within 40 minutes, and by 8 pm, rescue operations were on in full swing with JCB machines.
By 9.30 pm, three hours after he fell in, Sachin was pulled out with only minor injuries.
However, the celebrations couldn't hide one glaring fact - that clearly the authorities have not learnt any lessons from the baby Mahi tragedy.
The three pits were just one meter apart from each other and left uncovered.
A week after baby Mahi died, the prime accused Rohtas still remains at large. This time around, however, the Gurgaon administration suspended the Junior Engineer and SDO and lodged an FIR against them.
Sachin is under observation now in the Gurgaon Civil Hospital. It was his luck that he survived this close encounter with death.
