Rescuers in Vietnam are attempting to extricate a 10-year-old boy who is imprisoned within a small pit at a construction site.

According to reports, was looking for scrap metal on New Year’s Eve when he fell into a hollow concrete pile in the southern Dong Thap province.

Since then, teams have fought to release him while supplying oxygen to the 35-meter-deep support pillar so he can breathe.

He was heard pleading for assistance two days ago, but when a camera was put down the hole on Monday, he made no reaction.

“We are making every effort. The status of the youngster is still unknown to us “According to a rescuer at the Mekong delta bridge building site, news agency.

Officials are astonished that someone might tumble down the pillar’s shaft, which is only 25 cm (10 in) in diameter.

With cranes and excavators, emergency workers have attempted to lift the pile, but so far without success.

They have also attempted to loosen the earth around the pillar, but this has caused it to tilt and hindered rescue efforts, according to the news agency.
