A four-year-old girl died after she fell into a 400-feet deep borewell in a village in Rajasthan's Jodhpur district on Monday.

A massive 13-hour rescue operation was carried out to bring out the child safely. The incident took place in Melana village of Jodhpur district.

The 4-year-old girl, who has been identified as Seema, fell into the borewell while playing near it.

Oxygen was also provided to the girl through a pipe to keep her alive, an official had informed ANI.

In April also, a three-year-old girl had accidentally fallen into a borewell but was successfully rescued by the police.

The girl was taken out of the borewell after two hours of operation.
