The rescue operation mainly consists of three processes; Approaching the Child, Handling the body, Taking child out of the well. In the past few years, there have been several accidents of children falling into abandoned bore wells in India. Abandoned bore wells have turned into death pits for children. Rescue teams spend hours and sometimes days in futile attempts to save these little kids. A lot of money is also spent in these missions. In most cases they are unable to save the kids. Such events have happened numerous times in the past, and every time either the government or the bureaucracy is blamed. The rescue process to save the child from bore well is a long and complicated process. The rescue team tries to approach the victim from a parallel well that take about 20-60 hours to dig. This complicated process makes 70% of the rescue operations fail. Very few of the victims have been saved in such accidents. Recently some autonomous robots came on to screen to take out the trapped body in a systematic way. But the question rises, why these bots are not in action in the real world. This brings out safety that how far the robot handles the child safely.
