Spain Totalán search: Body of missing boy found


0

Rescuers in Spain have found the body of a two-year-old boy who fell into a borehole near the southern city of Málaga, officials say.

The boy, named Julen, disappeared into a narrow well more than 100m (328ft) deep during a family outing on 13 January.

Specialist teams worked day and night in a tunnel that had been dug parallel to the narrow borehole.

The body was found at 01:25 (00:25 GMT) on Saturday.

The accident happened in a hilly plantation near the village of Totalán.

The borehole had apparently been left uncovered, although the businessman who had originally had it dug a month earlier insisted that he had sealed it.

Rescuers had found hair among debris removed from the well and compared it with DNA samples from the boy’s drinking bottle as well as his family, confirming his identity.

A small bag of sweets was sent down the hole, tracked by a camera, but soil blocked the cameras from going further down.

Rescuers had not picked up any hopeful sign from the boy during the whole operation.

Julen’s parents José and Victoria have experienced tragedy before.

Residents where they live say their three-year-old son, Oliver, died suddenly less than two years ago because of a heart problem.
