The body of a two-year-old boy, who fell into a 250ft deep well nearly two weeks ago, has been found by the rescue workers in Spain.
The Civil Guard released the footage of rescue workers trying hard to reach the body of Julen Rosello.
The Civil Guard’s Twitter page tweeted:
‘Our thanks to all those who from all over Spain and from all areas have given the best of themselves chasing a dream that unfortunately could not come true.’
‘Your example of effort, determination, and courage in the search for #Julen will remain forever.’
His parents Jose and Vicky Rosello are still grieving the death of their son who fell into a borehole on a private estate in Totalan, southern Spain, on January 13.
The rescuers dug out a 13ft horizontal tunnel by hand to reach the body of the two-year-old.
The family had also lost their first child Oliver after he suffered a sudden heart attack in May 2017 when Julen was barely seven months old.
Julen’s father recalled the tragic incident as he told a Spanish TV programme:
‘I was putting some more wood on for the fire and ran towards him. My cousin was a bit nearer and threw herself on the ground as I reached the orifice.’
‘He had already gone. I heard him cry at first but then I didn’t hear him cry anymore.’
The central government’s representative in the southwestern region of Andalusia, Alfonso Rodriguez Gomez de Celis wrote on Twitter:
‘Unfortunately, at 1.25am, the rescue team reached the spot where they were looking for Julen and found the lifeless body of the little one,’
Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez wrote on Twitter:
‘All of Spain feels the infinite sadness of Julen’s family. We have followed closely every step to reach him,’
‘We will always appreciate the tireless effort of those who searched for him during all these days.’
