Rahul Sahu, 11, who had fallen into an 80-ft deep borewell at Pihrid village in Malkharoda block of Janjgir Champa district of Chhattisgarh and was rescued after a 104-hour-long operation on June 14, is slowly recovering.

He is currently undergoing physiotherapy treatment to strengthen and rebuild muscles. A five-member team is keeping tabs on Rahul’s health.   

His father Ramkumar meanwhile said Rahul will be discharged in three-four days. On the other hand, hospital authorities have not made any clarification on discharge of Rahul.

When Rahul was rescued from the borewell after five days, doctors were doubtful whether he would respond to treatment or not. On the very first day of treatment, doctor Sushil Kumar had told media that Rahul had infection and injuries. Also, Rahul was suffering from pneumonia as half of his body was submerged in water for five day inside the borewell. Proving doctors wrong, Rahul was seen cooperating with doctors and is recovering now. 

A massive operation was launched by the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) from Odisha, state disaster response force (SDRF) and the Indian Army jawans to rescue Rahul from the borewell.  A robotics team from Gujarat was also part of the rescue operation. Following his rescue, Chhattisgarh government heaped praise on NDRF team of Odisha for playing a pivotal role in rescuing Rahul.
