Unbelievable moment boy, two, is rescued ALIVE after falling 500 feet deep in India as army battles for 45 minutes to reach terrified youngster

  • Shivan Badel, 18 months, was trapped 20 feet in the 500 feet pit in Dudapur Village
  • His family works as farm workers on the farm where he played before the fall
  • The child was taken to safety during an army rescue mission that lasted 45 minutes

This is the breathtaking moment when an 18-month-old baby boy was pulled from a 500-foot pit after falling into it while playing nearby.

The boy, identified as Shivan Badhel, was the focus of an army rescue mission that lasted 45 minutes on June 7 in the village of Dudapur, Dhrangadhra Taluka, Surendranagar district of Gujarat, western India.

The child fell 20 feet into the 500-foot-deep well on Tuesday while playing, near the cabin on a farm where his family works as farm workers.

The footage shows a thick piece of rope dangling through a tunnel that appears to go underground.

As several members of the military surround the area, a baby can be heard screaming and crying as he desperately seeks help.

Shortly after, you’ll see a rescue team member gradually pulling the rope to the top of the pit, while others join in to use their strength.

The baby’s cry grows louder as the end of the rope slowly reaches the surface of the earth.

Suddenly a head pops up and the rescue team quickly intervenes to pull the child out.

As the baby emerges from the hole, the crowd can be seen clapping and cheering before the baby is escorted into an ambulance by two members of the military.
