The body of 5-year-old boy who fell down a 100 foot deep well in Morocco on Tuesday was retrieved on Saturday, February 5.
The boy was found dead after four days inside the well. Rescuers had to dig a cave next to the well and drill to the bottom to reach his body.
In an official statement carried by state television, Morocco’s King Mohamed VI offered his condolences to the parents of the boy, identified as Rayan, as the meticulous relief operation came to a heart-wrenching end.
Rayan reportedly fell through a narrow opening of the well while playing in the village of Ighran in Morocco’s Chefchaouen province on Tuesday evening.
