Rescuers searching for a toddler trapped for a week in a well in southern Spain began drilling a tunnel on Saturday, in the latest bid to reach the boy as part of a massive operation to find him.

Julen Rosello fell down a very narrow shaft more than 100 metres (330 feet) deep last Sunday while playing as his parents had lunch nearby in the town of Totalan near Malaga.


Drilling work at the area where Julen, fell into a deep well six days ago close to the private estate, in Totalan, southern Spain.

Rescuers frantic efforts to reach a two-year-old boy who fell into a deep well have been hampered by difficult terrain.



A special capsule capable of supporting the weight of two people and oxygen equipment has been created so Julen can be brought out alive if he survives what is set to be at least seven days underground.

Rescuers hope to find him at a depth of 236 feet, where a soil blockage has hampered efforts to save him, and are holding out belief that he may be stuck in a separate hole underneath.

One of the drilling machines, described as the most powerful in Spain, was taken off a job on a motorway near Madrid so it could be used in the rescue operation.

Stage three of the operation will involve mine rescue experts flown in from northern Spain earlier this week digging out a 13-foot-long horizontal tunnel by hand from the point the drills reach to the 10-inch-wide borehole Julen is in.
