The joy of successful rescue of two children who fell in a trench in Utukuru Pedapalem village of Nellore district faded when one of them lost her life while undergoing treatment at a government hospital at Ramateertham.

Three-year-old Mokshita and four-year-old Gopi Raju, who were cousins, had accidentally fallen inside the 12-feet deep trench which was dug for laying a pipeline.

Locals immediately contacted the officials and a rescue operation was started almost immediately.

A tunnel was dug parallel to the trench using a JCB machine and the children were taken out after four hours.

The duo was rushed to a government hospital where Mokshita succumbed to her injuries.

Mokshita hailed from Chirala town in Prakasam district. She along with her parents had come to Utukuru Pedapalem village to visit relatives.
