Tiruchirappalli: The two-year-old boy who fell into a borewell was declared dead by officials early Tuesday morning. Inside the borewell, the body of Sujith Wilson had decomposed. Soon after the body was found, a rescue operation that involved digging a parallel tunnel to get to the kid was called off. Government officials said last night that it would have taken 12 more hours to rescue the child. A stench from the borewell reinforced their worst fears-the child died without food or water after four days in the tunnel. Officials retrieved Sujith Wilson's dismembered body from and sent it for a postmortem.
