Rescuers searching for missing toddler who fell down 100m well in Spain - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) More than 100 firefighters and emergency workers in southern Spain are searching for a two-year-old boy who fell into a narrow and deep borehole. Rescuers have been unable to get into the borehole, which is no wider than 25 centimetres in diameter and is believed to reach depths of more than 100 metres. On Monday afternoon (local time) they deployed three different approaches to reach the bottom of the well without damaging its structure or blocking it with soil and rocks, local authorities said. According to rescuers, the toddler fell into the hole early on Sunday afternoon after walking away from his parents while playing in a mountainous area near the town of Totalan, north-east of the city of Malaga. The hole, which is too narrow for an adult to enter, had been bored a month earlier during water prospection works and had not been covered or protected, according to local media reports. The provincial representative of the Spanish Government, Maria Gamez, said that firefighters using a robot camera in the early hours of Monday found a bag of lollies that the boy was carrying when he went missing. Civil Guard spokesman Bernardo Molto told Spanish public broadcaster TVE that efforts would now focus on using more sophisticated equipment to widen the hole while also digging separate tunnels to access the shaft. Asked whether the investigation is also considering any other reasons for the boy's disappearance, Mr Molto said the authorities' priorities were "searching, locating and rescuing the boy".
