Pookottumpadam (Malappuram): In an adventurous act, a two-year-old girl who fell into a well was saved by two young men. Ayishu, daughter of Amarambalam native Abdul Gafoor and Fazila, was miraculously saved from the well. The incident took place on Monday by 6 in the evening.
Abdul Gafoor and neighbour has only one commonly used well. As the motor was under repair, the safety grill above the well was kept open. The child happened to fall into the well through the open grill. As her mother raised an alarm, Sudheesh who was painting a house nearby ran to the spot.
Sudheesh managed to enter into the well hanging on the rope tied to the motor. He held the child high and hanged on to the rope. Meanwhile, neighbour Sany Ajay also arrived and entered the well. They secured the baby in a cradle and brought outside with the help of their colleague Ansar.
Even cleaning labourers refuse to enter inside the well whereas Sudheesh, Sany and Ansar dared their lives to save the child. They keep receiving appreciation from neighbours and locals for the brave act. Sudheesh is son of Karulayi native Sankaran and Janaki and Sany Ajay is the son of Pookottumpadam native Ajayakumar and Mini.
