Local reporters have said the mother is at the site calling to her son, asking him not to cry. Every effort is being made to ensure that he is safe.

Meanwhile, Deputy Director of Fire Services Priya Ravichandran and the Health Minister are supervising the efforts. However, oxygen continued to be supplied with hopes of the child being alive. When asked why they haven't used small boring machine which was used to drill where the child fell, he said that would involve multiple bores and would take days compared to this method as they need a bigger hold for men to enter to rescue the child. "I believe that the child will be rescued by tonight", he added.
