Moroccan rescuers have spent almost three days trying to reach a 5-year-old boy who is trapped in a well in the north of the African country, state media MAP reported Friday.
The vigil had lasted for four days, transfixing tens of thousands of people around the world as a band of rescuers in a tiny Moroccan village tried to free a 5-year-old boy from a deep well.

What people are saying?
cee Sadly his father dig this well along time ago and the child is known to play in its vicinity. Sadly its a poor village and there were no rules enforcing guarding wells. Its speculated that the child saw something interesting dive into it or maybe hiss toy or ball fell down the well.
Lyn Just tragic! I don’t understand why this happens over and over. There has to be away of filling or at least covering wells properly when no longer in use to prevent this from ever happening again.
