“The Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Public Works and the local administrations of Zabul tried their best to save Haidar, but unfortunately he died,” the ministry tweeted.
Rescuers worked non-stop to try to reach the boy, who officials said was still alive Friday morning – before later announcing he had died.
“With great sorrow, young Haidar is separated from us forever,” said IEA interior ministry senior adviser Anas Haqqani, in a tweet.The post 5-year-old boy dies after being trapped in a well for three days first appeared on Ariana News.
