New Delhi (Sputnik): Two-year-old Tej Pratap Singh was rescued by a team on Sunday from a 21-metre deep borewell. The incident took place in Kerhar, a village in the state of Madhya Pradesh, reports website

The toddler was playing near the borehole before he fell in at about 8 a.m. on Sunday morning. The rescue team hurried to the location in less than an hour. They dug a hole parallel to the borewell and were able to reach the boy, the report said, quoting an unnamed official.

​The rescued boy is said to have emerged without "a scratch on his body" but was being kept under medical observation as a precaution, added the official.

The officials are investigating the incident, and attempting to find out how and why the borewell was left without a cover. A similar incident earlier this month involving a toddler in Spain ended in tragedy.
